Perfect! Fits perfectly, was glad to find out that the tie part is sewn to the dress and not a separate thing. This dress is flattering to my curvy hips and barely-there upper body. I am looking forward to wearing this to work and everywhere else. I'm big on layering and this works great over the long-sleeve tee I'm wearing.

Like the dress I ordered this with, this top fits me perfectly. I like that the ties are attached to the top. This is a great transitional top since I can layer it over a t-shirt or wear it by itself. I ordered black to get the most use out of it, but I would love to have both this and the dress in other colors as well. This is the fourth item I've ordered from this shop, and I've never been disappointed.
We're all in it together.
I grew up in rural Northern Michigan surrounded by lakes and forests.
Always a country girl at heart, I spent some years traveling both in
the U.S. and abroad gaining inspiration and insight before returning
to my roots in Michigan several years ago.
As a little girl, I used to call myself Violet Star, so in 2003, when
I began selling my work at art shows this seemed a natural choice for
my business name. At first my work consisted of a colorful and
eclectic mix of recycled and salvaged fabrics, yarn, and beads. Over
the years my work and my business have grown organically and I am
proud to now offer my signature line of fine women's natural and
My designs are inspired by my love of life; by movement, dance, and
travel; by the beauty of the natural world, by the subtle sensations
of fabric across bare skin and the balance and symmetry of the female
body. Combining colors and textures with form, I create pieces to be
lived in, that are equally suited to everyday wear as they are to
nights out. Without sacrificing comfort or quality, I create designs
that are both casual and elegant, rustic yet sophisticated, polished
but down to earth. My work is a celebration of the female form. I
strive to create pieces that women of all shapes and sizes can look
and feel beautiful in and that are accessible to women of many walks
of life. With a focus on environmental responsibility I work with
natural, organic and salvaged fabrics and fibers to create my original
Violet Star line which consists of an extensive collection of classy
and unique pieces that stand out when worn alone and when combined and
layered become subtle, yet fantastic compositions of wearable art.
In my years as a designer I feel that I have become a student of the
human body. Combining color with form to create timeless pieces that
are functional and versatile and accentuate and compliment a women's
