Gingham Cotton Day Dress with Monogrammed Back
Brand Embers / Cinders Vintage
Here we have a darling 50s gingham print dress made of soft, breathable cotton. Perfect for the summer!
Dress is sleeveless, with a notched collar and button front bodice. Double darted bodice with a true waist and gathered skirt. The dress has two darts at the front of the bodice and two at the back (please see out note below about seam allowances).
The dress also includes a matching gingham belt.
The back of the dress features a cute detail of a monogram of what appears to be a calligraphy letter "G"? But the jury is out on that...
SEAM ALLOWANCES : We're often asked about seam allowances on dresses like this. In anticipation of those questions, there are two darts at the front and back of the dress, for a total of four, that are folds of fabric measuring 3/4" EACH laying flat. Again these are folded pleats, while the seam allowance at the side seam of the dress is cut and measures 1/2" at each side seam. Please feel free to reach out for clarification or if you ave further questions!
