This dress is THE style of the summer. It's a Mexican peasant style originally popularized by artist Frida Kahlo, who celebrated everything 'Mexican' and brought traditional Mexican costume to New York, looking so fabulous that the style became popular. See her and her costumes in the movie, "Frida".
This Mexican peasant dress fits itself to your figure as opposed to you fitting (or forcing) yourself to it. And it does it in a very flattering way. Designed with a smocked waist that fits to you with yet more options for fit with a drawstring tie, a full bodice with an elasticized and ruffled neckline that you can wear on your shoulders or be a tad daring and wear it off-shoulder, a long, full, tiered skirt, and short elasticized sleeves. The bodice has a drawstring tie so that you can adjust the fit and degree of openness.
The fabric used for these is a crinkle rayon that's cool for summer, feels great against the skin, drapes and flows beautifully, and accepts dyes well for rich, saturated coloring. There's only one problem here: it's available in such a wide array of colors, how will you decide which to choose?

Sizes vary per vendor. Please take your measurements and find your size.
How to take your measurements To find your correct size, use a tape measure and take these measurements. Stand with your back straight in front of a mirror, to make sure that you measure correctly and that the tape measure is kept level.
1. BUST Measure under your armpits, around your shoulder blades, and over the fullest part of your bust. Don’t pull the tape measure too hard. For fitting a bra, you also need the measurement just under your bust.
2. WAIST Measure around your natural waistline. This is the narrow part of your waist, about an inch above your navel. Relax and breath out before you measure.
3. HIP The hip should be measured around its fullest part (about 8 inch. below your waist).
4. INSEAM This is the measurement from your ankle to your groin, when you stand with your legs straight. If possible, ask a friend to help you. This can also be measured on a pair of pants with the proper length.
