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 art deco Crocus 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.
For more information on fit and sizing please visit our size guide. The measurements refer to 'your' body not the garment itself. Please choose the size that most reflects your measurements.
I was pleasantly surprised to see how well this dress works on different heights and body types thanks to the bias cut. I'm short and thought I would be swallowed in this dress but it actually wears beautifully. The only challenge I have is the length of the sleeves, but with the elastic cuff it works fine. The crocus print is incredible and it looks fantastic while being very comfortable.
I was so excited to see the Joanie released in this new Crocus print. I already own it in Poppy Spray, and want it in every print and colour it is ever released in. So incredibly flattering to wear and such a gorgeous authentic 1930s silhouette. I love that this print can be styled for day or night looks. Thank you HoF!!
