Plus Size Earthtone Gypsy Tiered Sundress

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).

Before you faint from the price, I probably should tell you that I cut and sewed each piece of fabric in that skirt fabric, plus all the vertical seams are overlocked, as well as the horizontal seams. Many hours (look below for an approximate number) went into the creation of just the yardage with which to make the dress...thus the high price.

Super full skirt measures over 13 yards around the bottom, thats 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.

Returns on garments must be made within 1 week of receiving, and be in the exact condition in which it left my hands. You will be refunded the purchase price only, as soon as I receive your return, with a deposit to your Paypal account.

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 texture and pattern in the skirt, I felt that a simple plain top would be perfect, so I chose the tribal look print which you see.
