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 -- lined in a soft chiffon print with cool, blue and purple tones
• higher, shaped waistband, contoured to fit (& flatter) at the narrowest part of the body (not a true "empire" waist, but higher than natural waistline)
• straight, knee-length skirt, shaped with darts, and a center-back hem vent (for sitting/striding with ease)
• front, patch pockets (with sweetheart shaped tops), fully lined
• 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

Fabric is vintage, repurposed (luxury bed linen) that's a cotton-poly blend (10% poly to help resist wrinkling) in a deep, dark charcoal gray. Bodice lining is a vintage synthetic chiffon (light & airy) with a dyed pattern in blue and violet tones.

• Bust = 48 inches around (+ about 1" more room with pleats fully opened)
• (high) Waist (measured at center of waistband) = 41 inches around
• Hips = 51 inches around
• Lengths (measured at center back) = 8 inches from neckline to top of waistband + 3 inch tall waistband + 23.5 inches from bottom of waistband to bottom edge
(bodice length from shoulder to bottom of waistband is 16 inches)
• Armholes = 19 inches around
