Hell Bunny has been making lovely, light and flowy dresses the past couple of seasons and are back at it for spring. The Sheila dress is a sweet staple for spring and summer. With an apple and daisy motif, this 50’s style reproduction dress should definitely be considered for every gals wardrobe.
The Sheila comes in three colors- black, smokey blue, and a pale green. I decided to review the green, as green and red hair are a perfect pair 😉
I paired the Sheila with a red crinoline and one of the new belts from Hell Bunny, which kind of remind me of the 80’s, but are such great belts to add on to almost any dress. The girls at work all have them and guaranteed one of them is wearing one every day!
I am wearing a medium in the Sheila and it fits quite nicely. I didn’t feel restricted or uncomfortable, but comfy, because the fabric is so light. Here are my measurements so you can compare for yourself:
Bust: 37″ Waist: 29″ Hips 40″
If I look at the size chart, my top half would fit the large and my bottom half would just squeeze into the small. I almost always wear a medium in Hell Bunny, unless it has stretch panels, then I go down a size. If you are ordering this dress, I would get your usual size or call/email the shop and ask to compare a size with your measurements.
The only issue I had with this dress was how darn staticy is was! Defiantly get a can of static guard if you’re planning on getting this lovely little frock. But for $52 this dress is a steal! I tried mine on at Rowena but you can also get it at Retroglam.com
Hell Bunny is a great brand to check out if you’re just getting into pinup and retro style, or need an outfit for a theme party or event. Their dresses are usually very flattering, on all body types, they have a great variety, and are a fantastic price. Hell Bunny is also a leader in plus size retro fashion, making beautiful dresses up to 4xxl.
