You...enchanting by day, stirring and glamorous by night. May we present our thrilling new 1930s dress we have called 'Joanie' in homage to hollywood star and 1930s style icon - Joan Crawford.
This is a captivating frock based on an original vintage 1930s garment with some modern enhancements thrown in.
This dress has some typical mid 1930s design trademarks including flattering cowl neckline, long bishops sleeves and has been cleverly cut in several bias cut panels to hug but still flatter the body. We've made it in our reproduction 1930s Pixie print on rayon marocain which hangs beautifully - this dress really is the real deal!
New in this print: Dress features a belt which uses our splendid art deco clasp. This was painfully recreated from an original.
No zip - due to bias cut - pull over head.
Key 1930s features include:-
- cowl neckline
- long bishop sleeves with elastic at wrist
- keyhole at back
- art deco clasp belt
- low calf length - approx 32 inches from natural waist (this will change depending on your own shape)
Dry clean or cold hand wash - MUST dry flat due to bias panels.
Made in Europe
Fit class: Semi -Fitted
skims the body so that is follows shape but is not tight.
This dress is bias cut and as a result it will adapt to your shape and drape around the body, skirt will mould around the hip and the bust area is free. Best choose on waist size.

I'm an American vintage clothing dealer, and I knew exactly what I was looking for... I just couldn't find it in my size in time for my grandmother's 95th birthday. I took a chance and ordered this darling dress with express shipping, and it's an absolute dream come true, with all the look and feel of vintage without the fear of ruining and hundred year old frock, and flattering my postpartum "mom-bod" too! My only trifling complaint is that the elastic wrist really should be a cuff with a couple of buttons, but that doesn't detract from the overall effect. I hope this becomes available in a variety of patterns. I will buy them all!
Best dress i have ever owned. Cut on it is amazing.
