Elsie is a smock mini dress, made from a combination of a vintage fabrics.

Her body is made from a vintage William Morris curtain in print 'Lily Minor', with complimenting Sanderson floral print curtains to the skirt and sleeves. She also has a matching pussy bow which fastens at the back neck with a vintage button.

She has a fully lined body with french seams throughout, to make sure she lasts a lifetime. 

As with all handmade dresses, sizing is very different to high street sizing. Please do check your measurements before purchasing. Please do check the length as well, as depending on your height and size she may be better worn as a smock top. I wear my smock mini dresses with cycling shorts or skirts underneath because of their fullness and length. They also look great layered over leggings and jeans.

In these photos you can see how Elsie fits on me. I'm 5ft 5, a classic size 12/14 (UK) with a 40" bust for reference.

Bust: 50"
Length: 30"
Armhole opening: 15"

I recommend spot cleaning your dress for longevity rather than washing every time she is worn, however Frida is safe to be washed at 30° and hung to dry naturally.
