Rosalee Maxi Dress
Temporarily Out of Stock
Buy the Rosalee Maxi Dress from Experimental Space. A swooshy maxi dress with a beautiful deep back and a pretty cut out on the lower back. It is bra friendly, closed by a concealed zip along the side, and has very deep pockets!
Any light/medium weight woven fabric. Use rayon, viscose or crepe for a very floaty dress, or for a more formal version, you could use a satin/silk material. Another option is cotton lawn for a breathable summer dress that will be a bit easier to sew up than the drapey fabrics but still give you nice movement in the skirt.
Fabric requirements for 55″/1.4m wide fabric:
(See size chart in image gallery above)
Sizes Ava – Cara you will need 3.5m (3.8 yards)
Sizes Dee – Gia you will need 4m (4.4 yards)
40cm (16″) invisible (concealed) zip
Sizes; Bust: 31″, 33″, 35″, 37″, 39″, 41″, 43″
Fitting tips for larger busts/cup sizes: If your Full Bust (the measurement around the largest part of your chest) is more than 2.5″ larger than your High Bust, then you should always use your High Bust to get the best overall fit across your neckline and shoulders. To get your High Bust measurement, measure around your body, directly under your underarms. You would then do a “Full Bust Adjustment (FBA)” to properly fit your chest.
