This babydoll dress has been made to order and inspired from this original design

I use a linen and cotton gingham fabric for the body of the dress, its a perfect summer fabric that keep the body fresh. The loose style is very appreciate in summer and hot weather. I made the halter straps and the bralette in a blue grey silk and cotton with gold undertones. The flowers are made from a retro pink patterned wool. The scalopped lace around the collar is tea dye, as well as the crochet like fabric I used for the lace hem.

The bralette is removable! Take a look at the photos to see how it look without, and on the listing upper to see the original design without the bralette. This bralette will be appreciate to hold your bust if you don't want to wear a bra.

The bottom of the gingham dress as been frayed by hand to give it a vintage look. It is also hand embroidered all around this hem with a silk wool yarn in blue grey from Noro yarns. The top of the dress has been pleated and folded artistically and sewn like this by hand all around. The hem has been hand serge by hand with the same yarn than the bottom embroidery. The back buttons are a real closure., as well as the front of the bralette.

Also, I took a lot of care about how my dresses and tops could be altered for more versatility and customization, by me, your local seamstress and you. Note that this dress is made with a "baigneuse" at the bottom of the gingham fabric, this means it is folded. If you unsew this fold, you will be able to add 3" all around the dress, that means your dress will be 3" longer. Is not that great? This will be a knee length dress instead of a mini dress, and nice for tall girls, or to change the look. I took a LOT of care to make this baigneuse, matching perfectly the squares pattern of the gingham. Maybe a lenght more suitable for a wedding, as you want.


I conceived this halter dress to be confortable in summer, it is not fitted and let the wind keep you fresh. Its a long short style, so when you walk it moves beautifully. But, even not fitted it has his part a sexy with is beautiful back cleavage. It would make unique alternative wedding dress.

I would recommend to compare those measures to your actual clothes for a better fitting. I made the straps longer (this is hidden inside) so it would be easy to alter for customization.

***Sizing: will fits better on medium to large sizes US 6-8-10. Shown on dress from size 8.***

The top measures 40" over the bust area measured flat; and lightly pulled. it is made to be worn loose and its shown on a 36" dress form bust.
The hips measured flat are 82" pulled
Its length in front is 23" ;
Its length in back is 35" ;
Note that due to the bralette removable, the side of the straps can't be altered/moved. You still be able to add a little length to the front straps by your local seamstress (or me).

If you need assistance for fitting, please ask me I'm available to assist you and answer to all you question promptly. I will gladly accept returns and exchanges if it doesn't fit.

Prompt shipping is my device. If I can your dress will be shipped the same day, or in anyway within 24 hours. It usually takes between 6 and 10 days to get your order. If you want a tracking and a quicker delivery in 4 days it usually around 25$ for USA.

Some of my designs could be custom made, contact me for more info.
