The most detailed and authentic dress we have made - to date! 

A stunning reproduction late 1930s dress that we have packed with vintage detailing. 

This beautiful dress is based on photographs, original vintage patterns and an original dress in our archive. We havent held back in detail here and it really is one of our most intricate dresses. Consequently it takes a long time to make! 

A flattering shape, this dress has the key late 1930s features of shoulder yokes, shirring under and above the bustline creating a shapely ruched bust area. A deep V shape with 6 functional self-covered buttons runs through the bodice. Skirt is made of 7 panels to give an authentic shape and is lined.

Shoulders are strong with a pleated sleeve and shoulder roll. Full bishops sleeves finish with a button cuff.

Manufactured in our soft rayon rayon crepe - we have tried to source fabric as close as possible to the original used.

Key Vintage Details:-
- 6 self covered buttons
- shoulder yokes
- shirring above & below bust
- full bishops sleeves
- back zip
- swing skirt
- fully lined throughout

Fabric: Outer & Inner are 100% viscose crepe
Fabric care: dry clean only 
Manufactured in Europe

The dress style would be considered a 'tailored fit'.

It is fitted under the bust through to the waist. Due to the gathers above and below bust, there is a little bit more room than on size chart.

Fabric has no stretch in it - so if you are between sizes on waist measurement - it would be advisable to select the size above.

Please refer to the table below as a size guide. If you have purchased our Ava dress before - please choose the same size.

This beautiful dress was my first ever purchase from The House of Foxy. It is very flattering and so well-made. Initially, I was unsure what size to select. I would normally wear a size 10 but my measurements (aside from the bust) aligned with those recommended for the size 8 on this chart. I sent in an enquiry and was advised to select a size 8. Choosing the size based on my waist measurement turned out to be good advice as the smaller size fits me like a glove. It’s fitted enough at the waist, but I still have plenty of room in the bust and hips. The colour really is lovely and all the little details in the sewing of the garment make it look just like an authentic 1930’s dress. Will definitely be purchasing from The House of Foxy again in the future.

Holy cow this dress is amazing!! My measurements are 39-29 and I ordered the UK12 which is the same as what I wear in the Ava (as recommended). This dress is amazing on. Long sleeves are almost always too long on me but these are absolutely perfect. The bustline is a tiny bit short on me, but it's hardly noticeable. I so hope the do this dress in a print sometime!!
