A must for forties fans - this is a classic 1940s dress we have called 'Ingrid' in homage to the Casablanca actress Ingrid Bergman.
Based on an original American vintage dress from the 1940s, this is a classically simple shape - the beauty of the dress is the simplicity of the bodice, a very typical 1940s feature.
Soft grown on sleeves which hug the shoulder give you the option to add shoulder pads if you really want to emphasise a 1940s look. The high sweetheart shape neckline is flattering but demure. Skirt is a typically lean 1940s skirt but has enough swing to float you through any dance. Also note the lovely 1940s waistline feature of two rounded tabs.
This dress is a real head turner - stunningly simple and very forties.

I'm normally a 12 to 14, ordered the 14, but very tight in the chest, so having to return. A shame as its a lovely dress
What a stunning dress. I change the belt to suit my accessories
It fits like a dream and is true to size. Very classic 40’s style!
