Specially designed and hand-made for easy (& fun) everyday wear, the BeesKnees Dress has less fitted styling, but a whole lotta sass (& some rick rack). Oh, a matching belt. Oh-Oh, & did you check out the a-ma-zing fabric!

Design features include:
• a just-fitted-enough top with a higher, v-neckline & short, cap sleeves
• yoke-front style with a pleat & rick-rack trim (the pleat covers the over-bust gathers that give even more roominess where it's needed to, like, move around)
• 4-panel bottom--with more pleats on the side-front panels--gathered at the back & side-font for shaping and plenty of non-binding move-ability
• a matching, tie belt (& 2 sturdy, fabric belt loops)

Dress fabric is a woven, cottton-poly blend (it's a re-purposed, vintage bed sheet = fully laundered & awesome, of course); I've fussy-cut the dress pieces to match the fabulous Garfield + Odie running around print (plus made a hybrid-creature at the bodice front [Garfield's head + Odie's body], for just a smidge more weirdo-fun).

Final details: dress closes with a side zipper (vintage, yellow); neckline closes with a vintage button (yellow) + elastic loop closure at the top of the back-neckline vent. Neckline & sleeves are fully faced (lined in self-fabric) and top-stitched in place (for easy care = less ironing to keep edges crisp).

• Bust = 50 inches around
• Waist = 43.5 inches around (can be tied smaller with belt)
• Hips = 64+ inches around (64 inches is with all gathering still all gathered)
• Length (measured at center back) = 16.5 inches neckline to waist seam + 25 inches waist to bottom edge
• Sleeves = 19 inches around at bottom edges
• Belt = 2 inches tall x 53 inches long
