Inspired by the figure-flattering shapes of 1950's styles, I designed & handmade this perfectly-Pretty dress with fabulous & flattering details like:
• a scooped, sweetheart neckline with delicate pleats over the bust
• fully-lined bodice (top) with soft gathering under the bust
• higher, shaped waistband, contoured to fit (& flatter) at the narrowest part of the body (not a true "empire" waist, but higher than natural waistline)
• full, flirty, knee-length skirt, shaped with small pleats & finished with a solid band at the bottom hem
• center-back zipper closure, with a hook & eye at the neckline for added security
• hidden lingerie straps at the shoulders = make sure everything stays covered

Fabrics are both vintage yardage: fuchsia-purple solid color is a soft, breathable, woven cotton-blend (from the mid-1980s); floral-print on black was a shawl (& feels like a cotton-rayon blend).

DRESS MEASUREMENTS:
• Bust = 52 inches around (+ about 1.5" more room with pleats opened)
• (high) Waist band = 46 inches around
• Hips = 65 inches around with pleats all fully closed (over 80" with pleats opened)
• Lengths (measured at center back) = 8.5 inches from neckline to top of waistband + 3.5 inch tall waistband + 24 inches from bottom of waistband to bottom edge
(bodice length from shoulder to bottom of waistband is 16.5 inches)
