I bought this red and black polka dot dress, the Cassy Dress, from Lindy Bop in 2016 but had never worn it anywhere. For a New Year’s Eve party I wore it with a red petticoat also from Lindy Bop. It’s a 30 inch petticoat and really too long for this dress but that is okay. I got the black flower with net hair ornament and the black gloves from Unique Vintage. There is my son in the photo, he hates posing for pictures. I was certainly the only one at the party to wear anything like this, which is fun. I got several compliments on the dress. It is a UK size 14. It’s not a stretchy material. It is machine washable. The facing from the collar tends to peep out but I could fix that with some sewing. It’s not a particularly warm dress for winter and it was about 0 degrees out last night and even inside I could feel the cold air coming from the lobby doors. My son thinks the black hair ornament looks like something for a funeral lol. This dress is loose fitting under the bust which is good if you have a tummy that is less than flat.
