Visit a little bit of 1930’s retro fashion with our most romantic dress! We revised our popular dress from previous years by making the sizing larger to fit true women’s sizing. Made of easy care 100% Rayon Crinkle Gauze. Dress has a V-neckline with a serged ruffled edge. Dress is shaped under the bust. Feminine butterfly sleeves are center split with serged edges. Self-tie bow at bust. The skirting has a new feature: center front and center back seams with 4 correctly inset diamond shaped gores. No ironing! Ready to wear right out of the dryer! Note: Dresses are cut oversized because Rayon Crinkle Gauze shrinks quite a bit in the first couple of washes. Dress fits correct intended size after the dyeing, washing, and drying processes; which all cause shrinking. Sewn with cotton thread for perfect dyeing.

I ordered a large I'm usually about a size 10 and when washed dyed and washed again it fits perfectly. I ice-dyed it and it held the colors and pattern beautifully.

I ordered the size extra large because I am wearing a 14 top 16 bottom these days. It is enormous! The bust area hits me around my waist. I will need to reorder a much smaller size. If you are a large woman with a very large bust this dress may be for you.

I was disappointed in the quality of this dress. The construction was poor: seams did not align properly and weren't straight. The style of dress is unique & pretty but I would be embarrassed to admit I had made it if I had sewn it myself. The company who produced it dropped the ball in quality control. It makes me hesitate to buy any garments from Dharma in the future.

I ordered this dress in two sizes large and xlarge just to make sure I got the right size. I wear a 16 womens and am 5'4". The large size was dragging the ground by at least 5 inches. The waist was not fitted as in the picture it was extremely loose fitting. I'm sure it would shrink but its that crinkle fabric so will it bounce back to original. Hmmm hard to size but otherwise its a beautiful dress fabric is see thru dress is loose fitting. If I was to order it again I'd order a medium.

I really loved the dress I received. However I ordered a large the tag said large but it was humongous! the really need to measure clothing items before they send them out. a large normally is a 42" chest and 35" waist. This dress was an amazing 54" bust and 52" waist! It was also 57" long. No matter I love to sew and I had that puppy down to a 42" chest and 35" waist in no time. I reduced the length to just below my knees (removed 6" a few inches below the waist) with a lap seam and gathering. I'd love to do a video for you on how to do this also how easily increase a dress that comes too tight. It's not a biggie. Easier than returning it for those of us with sewing machines. It's in the wash now and I will be dying it tomorrow and I can send you a pic when done.
