Happy Dotties | Vintage 1980s-does-1950s button down dress with Structured waist
Happy dots make us feel, well..... happy!
These happy dots do, at least. We are simple folks that way ;)
And of course a good 80s-does-50s wiggle silhouette makes us think of how things could be sexy yet happy and relaxed at the same time. Actually, sexy is relaxed is confident, isn't it?
The double-breasted look on this goes all the way down from bust to hem and the buttons are entirely functional!
Has a decorative tie-back at the back of the dress which you could totally unpick and tighten or loosen to your needs.
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.
