A new limited edition colourway for our best selling tea dance dress we named after wartime pinup 'Betty Grable'. This colourway is a stunning warm rmustard crepe throughout - a very versatile colour. Light enough to work well in summer but warm enough in tone to take you through to the winter months!
This is the perfect dress for dancing! A most becoming dress with a demure tie neckline - softly shirred into shape with shoulder yokes and gathered under the bust.
This dress has been designed to be as faithful as possible to the 1940s styles. A slimming fit around the waist with elegant short sleeves with a touch of shirring and a sweeping 7-gore skirt to float you through any dance.
New flutter style sleeves that drape the shoulder make this dress perfect for dancing as they do not restrict the upper arm at all.
Fully lined bodice, side zip.
The fabric is a stretch crepe in a very vintage inspired mustard tone. Fabric gathers beautifully into yokes and under bust. The touch of spandex and means it will stretch a little to accommodate waist variances.

- keyhole neckline with tie

This dress is free fitting on hips due to the swing skirt and skims the waist. The bust area is fairly generous but is more fitted than it looks. It is also very fitted under the bust and feedback tells us that this area can be a little tight. For this reason, we strongly suggest that you select your size through the bust measurements and if unsure - opt for a size up.
Style suits pear shapes, hourglass and pillar most.
Fabric has a comfort stretch in it - so if you are between sizes - it would be advisable to select the size above.

Absolutely love this dress. It fits perfectly, size 22 47, 39, 48 and skims and hugs just where you'd like. The colour is very flattering and perfect for a lot of my brooches to give it some character
I adore this dress! I was initially downhearted that the 8 wouldn't quite do up however Claire explained that dressing for your size rather than a label is incredibly important. The 10 fit like a glove, it was so flattering to my figure and the material is very forgiving.
A beautifully crafted dress that gives a beautiful 40's shape! I love it!
