While making this dress, I showed it to a friend and she exclaimed, "Tubular!" -- and I knew that it had its name. The dress's canary yellow polyester blend vintage fabric has a super fun print of black dots and little tube-shaped things all over it, for lack of far better wording. Simply put, this is some awesome fabric! And it is also very lightweight, unlike some polyesters, making Totally Tubular Dress a perfect choice for summer. The dress features a smocked waistline that can be shown off or covered up with a wide belt, depending on your style. The sleeves are oversized and fluttery with small gathers at the shoulders. Three cute black buttons accent the yoke neckline. The gathered skirt falls right above the knee on most ladies. This dress has a really cheerful feel to it, and I just know that the right person will be very happy to wear it to a fun summertime get-together!
The Totally Tubular Dress measures up to 41" around the chest, and the waistband stretches comfortably from 29"-40" in circumference. It is currently available for $68 at Pageboy Boutique.
