An elegant new addition to the 1940s collection - a new tea dress that flatters and has some stunning details.

Another winning combination of top quality craftmanship combined with a plethora of features and topped of with a vintage style fabric that behaves as it should. 

This is a most flattering cut influenced by the the late 1930s dress styles worn from 1938 through into the wartime period. This dress has been designed to be as faithful as possible to these styles. This is a silhouette with a strong shoulder shape which we have enhanced by the sleeve design style, shoulder pad and a high neckline.

You will notice the lovely style details of the shirring at the shoulder and the pleats under the bust into the V shape waist panel. This has a figure enhancing effect.

Key Features Include:-
- high neckline with back keyhole detail
- shirring detail shoulder & pleats under bust
- short sleeves with tuck at cuff and gathers into shoulder
- small shoulder pad
- sweeping 7-gore skirt
- side zip
- lined skirt

The fabrics is a mid weight 100% rayon (viscose) and as such gathers beautifully into yokes and under bust - is similar to the fabrics worn at this time. Lining is a woven viscose.

Proudly made in the UK 

Fabric: 100% Viscose throughout
Washing instructions: dry clean only (we recommend dry cleaning due to the bias cut panels in the skirt & skirt lining which can become mis-shapen after washing and in particular line drying)
Length from natural waist: approx 25 inches

Fit Class - Semi-fitted
"skims the body so that is follows shape and may have close fitting areas (e.g. waist)"  

This dress is free fitting on hips due to the swing skirt. The bust area is fairly generous but will gape if the bust is too full. Waist band is fitted and for this reason, we strongly suggest that you select your size through the waist measurements.

Style suits most shapes.

Fabric has no stretch.

For more information on fit and sizing please visit our size guide. The measurements refer to 'your' body not the garment itself. Please choose the size that most reflects your measurements.
