Tiger Ferns | Vintage 1980s Shirtwaist Dress in Cool Oversized fit with Pockets

84 SGD

The story:

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 

Pinned?: 

No. But it was belted to show how it looks when worn with one. Please refer to the details below for exact measurements.

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. 

Cuff: 7.5in

Armhole: Approx 8-9in No shoulder seams (a little like a raglan sleeve)

Material: 100% Cotton. 
Origin: U.S.A
Tag: Cabrais. 
Lining: Unlined.
Transparency:  Seems opaque, but as with most vintage garments, a slip will help to keep things decent ;)
Condition: Excellent.
