Ok, so here is an absolutely FAB little hippie mini dress for warm weather. But here's the thing, you can wear it as a long top over some long wide pants too. It'll look fantastic. Size small is all I've left. Thus the sale price.
The color of the ground is a sandy beige and it's darker than the pictures, sorry. But the teensy floral print and great little trim found throughout the dress/top is Sedona deep spice with some earthy browns thrown into the teensy print.
This one has little thin straps that go across your shoulders, but then there are little elastic cap sleeves that you can wear either on or off shoulder too. It's cute! There's elastic across the top back too for a good fit. This is pieced and the bust part has 3 little shell buttons in the center. This bust part is darted, too. So just below that is that Sedona or terracotta U trim I was talking about. This runs all the way around, front and back. It is at this area on either side of the back that there are really skinny ties for adjusting the fit or just for "show".
Now, as the dress gets to about the thigh, there are applied poofy pockets on either side of the front -- left and right. They have elastic in the tops to give them the "poof" look. This small little detail makes this one kick, if you ask me. But wait! As the dress then drops another 2 inches from those great pockets, there is a big applied ruffle (same fabric) and trimmed out with the U trim again.
You'll wear this one all spring and summer long! It's *that* cute!
Oh, and these look good either steamed out OR rumpled. They all came rumpled, and since I keep everything but my picture sample packaged, chances are you'll receive a rumpled one. They look good either way. Measurements are taken on the steamed one, though.
I take the measurements across the front only, so double and then subtract your best guess wiggle room!
Bust: 18" at the very top of the side seam by the underarm.
Underbust: 16" from side to side.
Hips: 21" across and I took that measurement at the top of the poofy pockets.
Length: 34" and you can go up or down a couple inches since the inside teeny straps are adjustable.1573khbegsm
