In green corduroy with 3/4 length sleeves.

Victoria's Dress

Similar in design to Nicole's Dress, we remove the puffed sleeves and add sleeves without gathers at the shoulders for a mature look.  There are small tucks at the waist and a long, full skirt.  The bodice falls just above the waist on most women.  You may choose either elbow length hemmed sleeves, 3/4 length or long, elastic ruffle sleeves.  A pointed collar and back ties are included in the price.  Finished length in all sizes is about 51".   

To determine your size, please lay out a dress which fits nicely and measure across the front bodice at the bust (where the underarm begins) and across the front bodice along the waist.  Compare those measurements to the following to see if you can find a similar fit.  Generally speaking, Size A will fit a 1X and Size B a 2X and some 3X.  The approximate FINISHED measurements for this dress are as follows:

Size A: Finished bust across front 24.5, Finished waist 21
Size B: Finished bust across front 27.5, Finished waist 22.5

Nicole's Dress

A popular style with small tucks at the waist, gathered elbow-length sleeves with narrow cuffs and a long, full skirt. The bodice falls just above the waist on most women.  It can be an everyday dress or a formal, special occasion outfit when made in the right fabric. Try adding a collar or long sleeves for variation. The basic dress comes without a collar (pointed collar shown) and short elbow-length sleeves with cuffs. Finished length for both sizes is 51".

Tabitha's Dress

Tabitha's Dress comes in an easy to wear design with a slightly squared neckline.  There are no buttons or zippers and the dress easily goes over the head.  Short sleeves come above the elbow and are finished with elastic at the very end.  Long sleeves are finished with a small cuff.  The bodice has small darts in the front and back and sits above the natural waist.  Back ties are optional.  The length of this dress is about 50" in all sizes.  In the winter this dress is great with a turtleneck.  In the summer, it's quite comfortable and cool.  Please order this dress based on your bust measurement and be sure to give us your waist size in the box below.  This dress fits quite loosely at the waist.  Please add back ties to pull in if you'd like a trim fit.

Esther's Dress

Esther's Dress is a beautiful new design with bodice darts at the waist and a back zipper closing.  On most ladies, it will hit a little bit above the natural waist.  For a more formal look, we have dressed it up with a lace collar.  It will be equally nice with a round collar or without a collar for everyday wear.  This dress comes with either short hemmed sleeves or long sleeves finished with a small cuff.  Back ties are optional.  The length of this dress is about 50" in all sizes.  Please order this dress based on your bust size and be sure to give us your waist size in the box below.

Linda's Shirt Dress

This shirt dress reminds us of a classic jean dress.  It is versatile and comes with many options.  It fits quite loosely for busy days but has back ties to pull in the waist.  Sleeves are either short with a straight hem or long with cuffs.  The sleeves come with small gathers at the shoulder for ease of movement but you may request a straight sleeve without gathers.  The shirt collar folds back as shown but behind it there is a top button should you wish to button all the way up.  If so, the dress appears to have a simple square collar.  The skirt is gathered to the waist and is full at the hem but smaller at the waist.  If you want a true "jean dress" look, you may add buttons down the entire front of the dress. This style is presently available in Size 1X and 2X.  Finished length is about 50".

Ladies Blouseslip

We've worked hard to extend the sizing on our ladies blouseslip.  It makes a perfect underdress for wearing with jumpers.  The blouseslip comes with elbow length short cuffed sleeves, 3/4 or long sleeves ending with a small elastic ruffle, a round collar, button down bodice and long skirt.  The whole slip will be a couple inches shorter than our dresses.  As an option, you may give us a desired length and add eyelet hem at the hem in order to create a pettiblouse that will stick out under your jumper.  Our blouseslip is available in most of the whites, naturals and lights found at the bottom of the fabric page.   

To determine your size, please lay out a dress which fits nicely and measure across the front bodice at the bust (where the underarm begins) and across the front bodice along the waist.  Compare those measurements to the following to see if you can find a similar fit.  Generally speaking, Size A will fit a 1X and Size B a 2X and some 3X.  The approximate FINISHED measurements for these blouseslips are as follows:

Size A: Finished bust across front 24.5, Finished waist 22.5
Size B: Finished bust across front 27.5, Finished waist 24
