Details

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)

Bust 47"

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.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

A number of years ago I began collecting African tribal cottons, and other coordinating prints, as well as animal skin prints.

Somewhere along the way I cut a 7" strip from each for the purpose of....I really can't remember!

So last year I ran across all these strips and decided they would make a great gypsy style tiered dress. With all the skirt involved, I felt that a simple plain top would be perfect, and thus I came up with the above photographed dress.
