Sometimes you see a dress and fall in love with it, and that's what happened with this Sorrell Volcano and Dinosaur Print Dress* from Lindy Bop. I love dinosaurs, I love dresses, and I love me some Lindy Bop. It was meant to be!
The print on this dress is something else. It features different types of dinosaurs on a volcano landscape with cave girl pin ups. So damn awesome! The colour combination is so pretty, the aqua blue and the red and orange tones are such a great combination. The dress is made of a satiny material rather than a poly-spandex blend, it does have a bit of stretch to it but not much. The fabric makes it a bit fancier and ideal for a party outfit.
The Sorrell style dress nips in at the waist and has a contrasting peter pan collar that is an adorable touch. I haven't tried this style before but it's really sweet.
Sadly for me, this dress does not quite work for me, as it is way too roomy on the bust. I'm not particularly blessed in the bust department and this is much too big on the bust for me. It fits great on the waist in my usual size, but I'd say that this style dress is more suited to those with a large bust. I tried pulling the waist down and it didn't work like that, or with the waist as it is in the photos. Such a shame! I love the print so much that I'm going to see if I can get it tailored so it's more wearable, as right now my bra is just on show due to the gaping at the arm holes.
Lindy Bop have had so many exciting new prints and patterns lately, I'm loving the new range and can't wait to see what they do next.
