This hand woven and stunningly hand block printed cotton dress/caftan is amazing on!
I put it on - and didn't want to take it off. It is luscious beyond description!!!!!
It just flows and drapes around the body. Making you feel free and comfy and strong and playful and sophisticated and relaxed and like you're in an exotic land.
I know! That sounds like contradictions - but it really is all those.
Perfect combo of dress and caftan for these times when we are being cooped up at home, wanting to feel supported, relaxed, comfy and also be able to go out for groceries or a coffee without having to change.
Treat yourself and you'll experience what I am trying to say.
I kept the first one for myself - that should tell you a lot:):):)

It fits size S - Plus.
Center front and back length: about 45/46". Drapes longer on the sides.
Model is 5'5".

100% cotton - masterfully hand woven and hand block printed by skilled artisans in India. Occasional irregularities are the signature marks of hand woven and hand block printed fabrics.

I wash and dry all fabrics before making the garments.

Care:
best to hand wash cold, line dry on a hanger with anti slip foam.
But: you can machine wash cold inside a lingerie bag, delicate cycle.
Take out of the bag, shake it out.
Tumble dry for a few minutes to remove the wrinkles and line dry.

No bleach, no perfume, no color fasteners in the detergent. No dryer sheets.
No woolite. Those are hard on all fabrics. Use a simple detergent.

About size and fit

Open tab

As you will have determined, each item is designed in such a way that the loose drape and easy fit is able to fashionably accommodate a certain range of sizes. Items that are designated ONE SIZE have a super-loose, super-draped construction that is flattering for a wide variety of body types.

Please do not apply a universal size chart to our clothes.

Sizing is a designer's signature. Each is different. Please call or email us at info@absoutlelyabigails.com and ask for measurements. We will get back to you within 24 hours. Or you can call 318-219-0788 and leave a message. 

Please do not hesitate to contact if you're unsure of the sizing and fit!

Size ranges differ to accommodate the item's particular fit -- an M/L in one item can range from sizes 10 - 16, but another item might have an M/L that fits sizes 8 - 14.

Take care to always check for proper fit!

THE LOOK - THE FIT - THE ATTITUDE

If you're not familiar with unstructured and deconstructed designs, such as you find with Japanese minimalist or European avant-garde designers, the following are some guidelines to what it's all about and how to approach the unique nature of these creations.

What to expect :

VOLUME AND LOOSE FIT
The bigger the better -- don't be afraid to go one or two sizes bigger than usual. Let it drape!

LAYERS, LAYERS, LAYERS
Wear a shorter jacket over a long top. Pants under a dress. Go for it -- pile it on!

DROPPED SHOULDERS
Shoulder seams are purposely not on top of the shoulder, but lower down the arm to create a fluid and easy-going style.

EXTRA LONG SLEEVES
So you can just roll up your sleeves and go!

WAISTS WITH ELASTICS
Most of the elasticized waistbands can be easily adjusted -- look for a small opening on the inside (usually found on the side seam or back seam) of the waistband where the elastic is accessible.

PANTS WITH EXTRA-LONG RISE
As long as the pants are loose enough, you won't have bulges in the front -- no matter what size you are!

BIGGER THAN USUAL ARMHOLES
So you don't have that strangled armpit look, i.e. the armhole is not digging into your underarm.

Remember that the average guy is not savvy enough to appreciate the elegance of dressing like this ("It's not tight enough! It's not revealing enough!") -- it's the 21st century, so rely on your own sense of style. You know best. Most of all, expect to look a hundred times better than you do in regular clothes -- expect to feel empowered and fabulous.

What not to expect?

Anything ordinary or predictable!!!!!!!

These clothes are not for the masses. Be bold, wear everything with attitude!
