Another winning combination of top quality craftsmanship combined with a plethora of 1930s features and topped of with a vintage style fabric that behaves as it should. Again - we have not held back on detail with this dress.
This is a most flattering cut and is 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.
Dress has a high back neckline which hugs the back of the neck but alllows the deep plunging cross over neckline to remain demure and not too revealing. Bodice of dress is based on an original vintage 1930s nightwear garment and as a result has authentic detailed gathers into the shoulder and top stitched. The cute cap sleeves hug the shoulder and create an elegant silhouette. Gathers under bust create a flattering line into a slimming fit around the waist through the fitted waistband. With a sweeping 7-gore skirt to float you through any tea dance.
Key Features Include:-
- plunge neckline
- top stitching on shirring at shoulder and waist
- 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.

"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 in it.

A stunning dress. I feel so pretty in this and it turns heads. A perfect swing that does not blow up in the wind either. I ordered the 12. I am a 34 F or 32 E on the bust and pear shaped 5’9. It is really flattering . Although I am happy with the 12 I may just try the 10 on the next one I order just to compare as it is generous on the bust and I have a smaller waist. Hooked; such quality and so glad I have found somewhere that makes dresses for women with curves. Thank you HOF although I am not so sure my credit card will be so thankful as there are so many beautiful clothes to choose..
First time ordering from this site and I'm very impressed. This dress fits like a glove and I don't want to take it off anymore! Very pretty and ladylike yet also very comfortable. Tighter fit at the waist, generous fit in the bust (which I like!). Suitable for larger busts like mine, without being restricting or revealing, but still sexy. I really like the color and the print, the feel of the fabric and the attention to detail. The price is higher then I would normally pay, but the craftsmanship makes it worth it. The powder blue one looks very pretty too ... .
