Made from an original 1956 sewing pattern, this dress has a fantastic tropical print. Scattered amongst the bright pink hibiscus flowers on a turquoise background are tiny little sunbathers resting under palm trees!
It has a soft collar and an asymmetric front fastening, with three pink flower buttons. The waist closes with snap fasteners. There are pockets (of course!) hidden in the side seams.
The skirt has six panels and is a proper vintage length, which comes down to mid-calf. The sleeves are short, above elbow length.
This dress has been worn and washed two or three times.
Size 14-16 - not one of my usual sizes! The original pattern is a vintage size 18½. Half size patterns were designed for the more mature figure, so they have a more generous waist measurement than ordinary patterns.
Best fit for body measurements: Full bust: 39" (99cm) Waist: 33" (84cm) Hips: 43" (109cm) Skirt length: 30" (70cm) from waist to hem
This dress is made from 100% cotton fabric.
You can wash it in the machine at 30 or 40 degrees. (You may need to iron it afterwards.) The more you wash and wear this dress, the softer and more comfortable it will become.
