Earth tone and Tribal cotton prints, and African animal prints (both skin and image) combine to create this OOAK multi-tiered skirt, baby-doll bodice, sun dress, which will fit up to a size 20W, or larger if you have a smaller bust (see measurements below).
Super full skirt measures over 13 yards around the bottom, that's over 468"! The first tier is just over 3 yards in circumference, and each tier increases by just over a yard. Each tier is pieced, and there are almost 90 different fabrics included...only a couple are used more than once.
The perfect dress for a Cinco de Mayo fiesta party!
All seams, including vertical piecing seams are overlocked, and the bodice is lined so that no seams are visible. The straps are flat 1/4" wide black with gold pattern, same as the underbust band. There is a 12" zipper at center back, with a hook and eye at the top.
As far as how long it took to create this, I stopped counting my hours after 30 had come and gone! The dress is quite heavy (3 1/2 lbs) due to fabric weight, so shipping will be for a Flat Rate box.
The measurements for this dress are as follows: (should fit up to a size 20w)
Waist (under bust actually) 43"
Total length (without hem) is 55"
Straps are 18" front to back
I am 5'1" tall and the dress reaches the floor on my height. The usual hem is about an inch, but can be as much as 3" if you want it shorter As I have only overlocked the edge, I will hem it by machine when you specify in notes to seller what length you prefer. It is meant to be a boho, hippie, re-creation and needs to be at least to the ankles.
