The inspiration for this retro styled spring summer came from a multiple sources - couple of vintage patterns in my collection and the work of famed Hollywood designer Walter Plunkett. Think a young Katherine Hepburn and the other "working dames" in those classic 1940s black and white movies. The red rayon linen blend has a fantastic drape and soft hand.

The full fit bodice has T shape cap sleeve, a 3 button front opening, and turn back collar. The 4 panel A line skirt moves with a fluid grace. Side zipper for additional ease in putting the dress on. Fully lined with matching red polyester posh lining. Dress it up with a sassy belt and pumps and you're ready to take on the hottest day with sophistication and class. Or a sash and sandals for a more casual look.

Finished garment measurements:
Bust 38"
Waist 28"
Hip (9" below waist) 42"
Length waist to hem 32" (I will gladly shorten this before shipping! Just let me know desired length in notes to seller when checking out)
Circumference at hem 80"

Approximate street size S or 2-4 (street size is for reference only, please refer to finished measurements to determine fit) This size is smaller than my dressform so I am showing it on a hangar which of course does not show it to best advantage!

This style has all sort of possibilities - I have many other prints on hand and available for a casual look. Would also be a cute look for a wedding in a satin or dupioni satin. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination. Please contact me to discuss your preferences and cost for a made to order option.

Made in a smokefree and petfree home.
