This dress is running a little narrow at the hips. If you are curvy from the waist down and fall between sizes on the chart, we suggest sizing up. If the size is prefaced with the word 'SMALL' then you are narrower in your hips/legs/rear area.
XS/S- 0,2,4,small 6
LENGTH/ WIDTH GUIDE: Approx lengths for the BLAZE dress are taken from center of shoulder to the bottom hem. Double the width for complete circumference around the body. All measurements are taken when dress is on a flat surface.
GUIDE TO FINDING YOUR MEASUREMENTS:
LENGTHS- Place a measuring tape at the center point of one of your shoulders (Also known as HPS- High Point Shoulder). The '0' (zero) on the tape should be your starting point. Drop the tape and let it hang. It helps to look in a full length mirror to determine the length that suits you (If you prefer above, on or below the knee). For reference, average lengths (depending on your height) fall between 37-41inches on size XS. Since everyone's torso/leg lengths are different (even if two people are the same height), coverage length can never be exact. For all styles, we list the approximate lengths of our dresses measured from HPS. Please check the lengths to see if they work for you.
WIDTHS: Chest- Position the '0' (zero) of the measuring tape underneath one armpit aligning it as much as possible with the center part of your bust. Wrap around the circumference of your chest area until the tape matches point zero from the backside. Keep in mind that knits (stretchy styles) can accommodate widths that are broader than the listed dimensions due to fabric forgiveness, while wovens (fabric with minimal or no stretch) will only 'give' to a certain point. Usually, patterns are adjusted to work for sizing when the fabric is woven.
Hips- Repeat steps for measuring Chest, but start at the widest point of hips.
Arms- Repeat steps for measuring Chest, but start under armpit and measure around biceps.
(Arm length is not featured for this dress as it is so voluminous, it can accommodate any arm width.)

Meet the #linearBLAZE ; an amalgamation of jacket and dress in one amazing asymmetrical linear look, and like nothing you have ever seen before.
Rethinking the coatdress of yester-year and reimagining it for spring, the BLAZE will surely be the newest staple in your dress/coat/jacket/BLAZEr collection.
On the one hand, nay, one side, is the signature oversized lapel that is the statement feature of this piece. The flap is mirrored on the singular pocket to complete the asymmetrical concept.
On the other hand, nay, other side, are the signature vintage gold buttons that glam up many a linear garment. Here they stand all in a row, upon a closure that is completely faux!
Crafted in a beautiful rayon linen, the dress is sturdy enough to show off its bold features, but soft enough to take you all the way through the spring/summer season.
