Unique and hard to find clothing for the ultra hip modern gypsies and hippies who dance to the beat of their own drum. I shop the major clothing shows on the West Coast to select the funkiest clothing I can find. Most are manufactured in 3rd world countries. I try to be selective: No child labor, and maybe pay a little more for top notch quality. I bring you only what I'd wear myself. No dusty warehouse sale stuff and I promise you, you'll never get someone's mistake! All is new with tags, hand selected by me!

Description

You have your choice here of either 1X, 2X or 3X. But please, please, please let me know what size you want on your payment form. I always appreciate fast payment, but it does neither of us any good if I have to contact you and then wait.....to find out what size to mail.
I usually try to keep my shopping to dresses under 50 bucks unless it's hot designer funky stuff, and this is a notch above, but when you see these dresses, you'll understand why I just couldn't pass 'em up. I've also taken to buying from the higher end of the hippie garb companies because the stuff is simply made better. The old "you get what you pay for" adage fits this stuff.
This is a gorgeous blue-- so hard to get the color right on, but the first 3 shots are pretty spot-on. The last shot of the back of the dress is a bit too bright or something. Just a tad annoyingly blue in that picture.
There are 2 fabrics here--but wait! First, this is rayon. I know, I know, there's a billion different types of rayon these days. This is the heavy--drapey hand, feels like heavy spun Moroccan cotton rayon. Still cool water wash but such a beautiful hand, especially when it comes to the flowy or spinny (if you're a dancer) bottom. Now the fabrics--one is plain --though there's lots of nice tonal embroidery on these panels; and one is an embossed sort of jacquard--still the same hand in the fabric but so pretty especially mixed and pieced like this.
Sort of a patchwork style and the piecing is done vertically, accenting your height-- especially with that flowy bottom and the longer length on this one. Can you see how the piecing widens and then is swooped and then more piecing into that making up the big sort of ruffle at the bottom? But ruffle isn't the best descriptive word-- it's just full and flowy. A great dancer dress.

The bust has the piecing done on the diagonal The piecing is separated by some fancy "S" trim. At the waist there is a big crochet trim piece and this is lined there, so no see thru. Actually, that bigger crochet trim joins all the piecing, and though it's a wider crochet, this crochet trim IS lined.
I'm including a shot of the middle back. Look at that tie! It's wide and awesome.  Of course if that bow I made makes you feel too "girlie",  a simple knot will look great too. Also, the back piecing has no embroidery. It's pieced the same as the front, but downplayed-- without the tonal embroidery. I think that's best for this one. An all around fabulous "hippie" dress. To my eye this would look killer with a short jacket and boots. And a perfect choice with sandals for summer too!
Always go by the measurements rather than the size marked, since there is really no standard from company to company.

Measurements are taken with the garment laid flat and measured across the front only. Be sure to double and then subtract your own "wiggle room".

There is a LOT of fabric here, thus the weight and shipping charge based on the weight of this one.

I used to steam everything that left me. Now I only steam the photo samples. There is about an inch of give once these are pressed and that is how I take my measurements (on a steamed garment) so once you press the measurements will match those listed. These should be hand washed in cold but if you have an "oops" and it gets in the washer, you can steam it to retrieve almost any shrinkage! Love this rayon!
