We welcome spring with our fabulous new vintage inspired print - 'Pixie'.

The 'Peggy Sue dress' takes inspiration from late 1940s dresses. Whilst the majority of the population's clothing was still restricted by post war fabric rationing, many new or reworked styles echoed the new fashions following the launch of Dior's New Look in 1947.

This dress hails the New Look with its fuller skirt (though still not as full as the 50s) and details such as its raised collar and 5 individual hand stitched buttons down to the centre front.

The bodice has 2 pleats on each shoulder and with a kimono style short sleeve, gives plenty of room for movement. The sleeve has a small turn up. 

There are two darts in the bodice to nip in at the waist seam (looks really vintage) and features a side zip 

Summary of key features:-
- 5 black buttons on centre
- matching black trim on front pockets
- raised collar
- side zip
- 3 quarter skirt

The fabric is our signature high quality rayon (viscose) crepe and has a lovely drape. In our very own exclusive vintage style print. Print is our exclusive reproduction print featuring pictoral images from Switzerland on a vermillion red base. Bright and cheery!

Manufactured in Great Britain

Fabric: 100% rayon
Washing instructions: cool wash (expect 3% shrinkage) or dry clean
