Barefoot in the Garden Dress

Barefoot in the Garden Dress

Clearance Disclaimer

Romantic, flowing, gorgeous dress that will make you want to run barefoot in the garden! Retro 1930's fashion look. V-neckline with a ruffled edge. Shaped under the bust. Split butterfly sleeves. Self tie bow at bust. Skirt has four inset diamond shaped godets (triangular fabric insets). Asymmetrical hemline that moves and swirls.

This pull on dress has no zippers. It also has zero facings to fight with on the inside of the neckline. Everything is finished off perfectly for the dyer. A dream of a dress and ready to wear right out of the dryer. Needs no ironing! Made from soft textured 100% Rayon Crinkle Gauze! Fabric will appear flat in the package. This gauze will crinkle up after it's first wash and dry.

Rayon Crinkle Gauze fabric will shrink dramatically after the first wash and dry. That's why we designed this dress to be oversized when you first take it out of the package. The dress will shrink in the width and a few inches in length after washing and drying.

This dress is running on the small size. Sized as "JUNIOR SIZING". For Misses sizing, please order 2 whole sizes larger than you usually wear.

If your bust measures 31", buy the size S.
If your bust measures 33", buy the size M.
If your bust measures 36", buy the size L.
If your bust measures 38", buy the size XL.
If your bust measures 41", buy the size 2XL.
If your bust measures 44", buy the size 3XL.

The 5'8" model is wearing a dress that has been prewashed - washed and dried. The model usually wears a size XS garment. In the photo, she is wearing a size M dress sample of BRC259. The dress has shrunk to it's final dress length. If you try on the dress straight out of the package from Dharma, the dress will be longer in length than the photo shows here.


NEW FOR SUMMER 2016! Barefoot in the Garden Dress has been revised (stock code #BRC260) with true misses sizing!

This is a beautiful dress. The previous reviewer that said that the hem hangs to the floor failed to metion what size she bought. I am 5'7" and weigh 137 lbs. I bought the Large and the medium and the hems did not touch the ground. Both these sizes were too BIG. I am ordering the small to see if it will fit me. Review to follow.

This dress does look absolutely beautiful. It dyed up very well. Unfortunately I had two problems. First the neckline frayed in places after only the first wash. Second I wore this dress to an evening party. As the party wore on the dress stretched and stretched and stretched...until I had to hold the neck together so my unmentionables weren't showing. Great for a short afternoon tea I guess but not for wearing for a long time (or while holdingcarrying children).

Oh Dharma. This dress was my best one until the sizing went south and the price went up. I bought a batch of these in July and they were one size small. Bought another batch in August and they were more than two sizes small. And seams are ripping out more often because people try on what they assume is their size and it's too tight. I still LOVE you guys but please fix the sizing on this dress and see if the seams can be reinforced. Thanks.

This is my least favorite purchase from dharma. I bought several sizes for my customers. The 3xl shrank an incredible amount in the waistbodice area during the tie dye process....but the length remained way way too long. In the end it would have fit a size L 6 foot tall woman who wouldn't mind wearing a dress with a 3XL tag. After months of not selling it I ended up chopping the shirt off and adding an elastic waistband to the shirt part and I'm pretty sure it will sell as a skirt.
