Size Guide


We are super excited to announce our next Marilyn Sainty x Daylight Moon reproduction - the Marilyn Sundress!

This was a Marilyn Sainty style circa 1980's which we have reproduced with a Daylight Moon twist.  "I knew as soon as I saw this style that I wanted to reproduce it as I wanted to wear it immediately!" Madeleine Richards

This button back sundress is made in our signature super soft cotton lawn, with a full gathered skirt, pockets, a shaped and double layered bodice and a contrast sash, this style can be worn to your preference.  Belted or not, worn looser and layered over a top or worn more fitted on it's own, give it your own twist!

Model wears a size small in the image and is a size 10 and 5'11".

Bust and waist measurements provided in centimetres as below.  

Please note this style is very fitted through the bust and waist so if you have a bigger than average bust size it's best to size up! 

Extra Small - Bust 87, Waist 74

Small - Bust 92, Waist 79 

Medium - Bust 97, Waist 84

Large - Bust 102, Waist 89 

 *Pro tip for doing up a button back dress - step into the dress with buttons at the front to do them up, then turn dress around and pop your arms through shoulder straps!

100% cotton, gentle machine wash and hang to dry

Made with love and care right here in Tāmaki Makaurau, Aotearoa 🖤

Overseas import taxes - When you make a purchase with Daylight Moon you are liable for all Duties and Taxes on your order. In most cases, any customs or import duties are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country.

You may be charged for handling fees, duties and taxes as your order passes through customs. Any charges on a parcel must be paid by the person receiving the parcel.

Customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country. Please contact your local customs office for current charges before you order, so you are not surprised by charges you were not expecting. Orders placed in New Zealand will not incur any duties or taxes.

Missing Parcels - It is important you fill in your correct address when ordering. Daylight Moon cannot accept responsibility for the wrong address being used with an order.
