THIS ITEM IS MARKED 40% OFF OR MORE AND IS FINAL SALE.
Model is wearing a size XS and is 5'9.
THIS NEW VERSION OF OUR BESTSELLING PLAY DRESS HAS AN UPDATED FIT AND FABRIC. PLEASE SEE NEW SIZE/LENGTH CHART BELOW.
-This playful frock has a slightly oversized fit with pockets at the front and a drop ruffle hem for some extra 'frill'. 3/4 fitted sleeves balance out the flowy silhouette.
-While our original version was wider (more A-line) in the body of the dress, we slimmed down the silhouette so it's less 'swing' with a new cut that is slightly straighter. We kept the playful pattern, but made sure this version was more true to size.
-Maternity friendly! Size up if you would like to wear it later in pregnancy.
-The PLAY LITE is crafted in luxuriously soft modal rayon. (Unlike our original, no zipper entry necessary). While considered more of a 'basics' fabric, this version can still transition from day to night with the right heels and accessories.
-Please see size chart below. If you are wider in the hips than average for your general size, or prefer some extra wiggle room, size up. (For example, if you are size 6 at top but wear size 8/10 at the bottom, try the MEDIUM). If size is prefaced by 'SMALL', you are narrower on the bottom.
XS- 0/2/small 4
S- 4/6/small 8
M- 8/10/small 12
LENGTH/ WIDTH GUIDE: Approx lengths for the PLAY 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.
IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING LENGTHS- This version of the PLAY runs slightly shorter than our normal length chart due to natural shrinkage that occured during the production process for this run. If you are petite, this version will be a great option for you. If you need additional length, size up.
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 arpit and measure around biceps.
