Tiger Ferns | Vintage 1980s Shirtwaist Dress in Cool Oversized fit with Pockets
We almost feel like this as a romper would be so cool! But it's a dress, and that's literally cool (like hello, imagine the air coming up from the bottom *ahem - another reason why we personally have been all about loose fit, breezy dresses!)
You might think us a little mad, but this would look so 80s hipster with a red bowler hat, white hurricane sandals or black oxfords and a little brown bag.
And we love a good pocket - or 2! All the better for putting hands in when we don't know what to do with them :D
No. But it was belted to show how it looks when worn with one. Please refer to the details below for exact measurements.
All measurements are taken with the garment laid flat.
Please DOUBLE the measurements provided to get the approximate circumference measurements.
Alternatively, you can take a piece of your own clothing, lay it flat, measure it and make a comparison.
Approx. Size: M - L/XL
Shoulders: No shoulder seams (a little like a raglan sleeve)
Bust: Up to 22in (though we think it'll look cool worn oversized)
Waist: 19in (Fixed waist. Seems like it used to the elastic but it no longer stretchy so it is more a loose fit kinda dress. But you could always sew on a stretch of elastic binding or just put on a belt. There are 2 hanging belt loops at the sides.)
Top Length: 17.5in
Total Length: 46in
Hips: Up to 22.5in (Fixed waist. Kind of straight down from the bust.)
Sleeves: 16in No shoulder seams (a little like a raglan sleeve) so we measured from the neck to the cuff.
Armhole: Approx 8-9in No shoulder seams (a little like a raglan sleeve)
Material: 100% Cotton.
Transparency: Seems opaque, but as with most vintage garments, a slip will help to keep things decent ;)
