Look What Came In: Vintage Dressiness

Here's more proof that, from the dawn of the atomic age until about 1995, all plus-sized clothes were made of artificial fibres. Fat women must have been a sweaty bunch. Despite the risk that it might give you a rash if you wear it on a hot day, this dress is pretty cute eh? The label says something like 16 or 18, but it looks good stretched onto a size 22. There are a few tiny holes on the seams, but they could be easily sewn up. I don't know how to describe the pattern, it's not quite flowery, not quite geometric, it sort of defies categorisation and gets quite hypnotic after you stare at it for a while.

It's also a good dress to wear if you are looking to start a fight, as our Big Bum Jumble house model Kay is showing here with her belligerent stare and assertive stance. Don't mess with anyone in this frock.

Anyway, grab it on the 14th if you can! It deserves a good home.
