Retro Dress – Polkadot Crepe by à pois
Retro dress – Polkadot crepe
This beautiful retro style dress is made with 100% rayon crepe.
The rayon crepe drapes beautifully and its bouncy texture is cool to touch. It is a perfect summer dress.
Rayon is made with natural fibre which is breathable and washable at home.
* I recommend to wash it in cold water, a gentle cycle and cool iron.
Do not tumble dry because it shrinks.
This beautiful fabric has screen printed polkadots on soft baby pink base, and elegant matte finish. Very unusual for crepe indeed!
The front is gathered below bustline to create a natural curve. Both the front and back bodice have deep V shape, which enhances the soft outlines of your face and neck. Also it is effortless to slip it on/off.
The shoulder is slightly dropped to create French sleeves.
This dress is a relaxed fit but the fabric drapes really well with its own weight so that the silhouette is surprisingly slim.
This retro dress is fabulous to dress-up with heels for the dinner date or dress-down with white sneakers during the day out.
*Please note, you need to wear a singlet/camisole under the dress due to deep V cut of the bodice.
I have made one each in M and L sizes.
The specifications are;
M size – Ⓐ Waist 96cm Ⓑ Length 115cm
L size – Ⓐ Waist 102cm Ⓑ Length 116.5cm
