Model is 5'9 and wears size XS.
The #linearHERO is a straight shift-style dress with an attached cape.
There are a few style options with this dress;
Wear as is and let the cape flow as you go. Or, you can lift the cape up and over your shoulders gathering the excess fabric and pull toward the front of your body. Secure with belt for a 'vest' style vibe. (This option is also good when you need to put a jacket/coat on over the HERO frock.) Additionally, you can make a faux cowl-neck scarf by gathering all of the fabric to one side of your shoulder, pulling it around to the front and then wrapping it around your neck.
*The 'MOSS' color Hero dress is part of the 'olive' color family. We tried to edit the color as close as possible to the original hue, however, outside lighting does play a role in the overall shade you see in these images. Rest assured that the shade of Moss is beautiful and works well with most skin tones.
SIZE GUIDE: Stay true to size for the intended fit, or size up if you are wider on the bottom part of your body (hips/rear area) especially if you intend to wear it as the 'vest' style option. Based on customer try-ons before this style was released, many prefered one size up if they were between sizes on the chart for a more relaxed look (when in doubt about sizing, we suggest sizing up too). If size is prefaced by the word SMALL, you are narrower at the bottom part of your body, or, the style will be more fitted to the body.
XS: 0,2,small 4
S: 4,6,small 8
L: 10, small 12
XL: 12, 14,small16
LENGTH/ WIDTH GUIDE: Approx lengths for the HERO dress are taken from center of shoulder to the bottom hem of the dress. Additionally, we have also measure to the bottom of the 'cape' attachment (which is slightly longer than the frock it is attached to). Double the width for complete circumference around the body. All measurements are taken when dress is on a flat surface.
GUIDE TO FINDING YOUR MEASUREMENTS:
LENGTHS- Place a measuring tape at the center point of one of your shoulders (Also known as HPS- High Point Shoulder) where the neck and shoulder meet. The '0' (zero) on the tape should be your starting point. Drop the tape and let it hang. It helps to look in a full length mirror to determine the length that suits you (If you prefer above, on or below the knee). For reference, average lengths (depending on your height) fall between 37-41inches on size XS. Since everyone's torso/leg lengths are different (even if two people are the same height), coverage length can never be exact. For all styles, we list the approximate lengths of our dresses measured from HPS. Please check the lengths to see if they work for you.
WIDTHS: Chest- Position the '0' (zero) of the measuring tape underneath one armpit aligning it as much as possible with the center part of your bust. Wrap around the circumference of your chest area until the tape matches point zero from the backside. Keep in mind that knits (stretchy styles) can accommodate widths that are broader than the listed dimensions due to fabric forgiveness, while wovens (fabric with minimal or no stretch) will only 'give' to a certain point. Usually, patterns are adjusted to work for sizing when the fabric is woven.
Hips- Repeat steps for measuring Chest, but start at the widest point of hips.
Arms- Repeat steps for measuring Chest, but start under armpit and measure around biceps.

The fabric of the #linearHERO is knit CHENILLE. Think of it as Velvet's edgier sister. While it does have variations in sheen when brushed in different directions, it has more texture than a flat velvet fabric. The ribbed knit has stretch (think of a great light/mid-weight sweater) so it can accommodate more than one dress size.
We suggest wearing this fabric as the seasons change and temps drop due to the 'sweater-like' nature of this fabric. If you live in locations where the average temps are above 85 degrees, this fabric may be on the hotter side for outdoor wear.
100% Poly Chenille
