Named after one of our favourite Char ladies ;-) - Gracie is a rework of our very first 1940s style day dress. Influenced by an original CC41 dress and photos - this is a real nod to wartime styles - very wearable, flattering and pretty.

Another very flattering cut which is a classic take on the shirt dress. The wrap style shirt neckline combined with the sleeves creates the a classic wartime, early 1940s silhouette..

Dress has a shirt lapels with wrap but are fixed into the waist - pleats on the shoulder give extra bust room. Sleeves are grown on and have a small turn-up. Skirt is the classic 1940s style - not too much swing but not a wiggle either. We love to nip in the waist with the stunning belt with self covered buckle. You will love this belt.

Key Features Include:-
- faux shirt style
- grown on sleeves
- self covered belt to nip in
- side zip

The fabrics is a mid to light weight 100% rayon (viscose) and as such swings and gathers beautifully - is similar to the fabrics worn at this time. We would advise wearing a slip underneath the skirt (as would have been done in the 40s of course!)

Fit Class - semi-fitted
"skims the body so that is follows shape but is not tight"

This dress is semi fitting on hips due to the swing skirt. The bust area is fairly generous but will not sit right 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 and if unsure - opt for a size up.

Style suits pear shapes, hourglass and pillar most.

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