In homage to screen siren, Rita Hayworth, we present our new 1940s style evening/cocktail dress in quality black crepe (with a hint of stretch).
Glamourous and nostalgic - this dress takes its influence from American 40s Hollywood wartime styles but with a bit of film noir thrown in.
Dress has a classic 1940s sweetheart neckline with grown on sleeves to give the iconic 40s silhouette. Two darts under the bust to nip in at the waist. A supremely flattering neckline for all sizes. Elegant waterfall design sarong skirt is again an iconic American 40s style and creates flattering ruching on the tummy.
- Dress has simple bodice with sweetheart neckline
- Waterfall sarong style skirt
- self covered belt
- ruching over tummy
- side zip
- keyhole fastening at back neck
Fabric: Rayon/poly mix with a touch of spandex for stretch. Unlined.
Length from waist: 27inches approx
Fabric care: recommend dry clean
This dress is very accommodating on hip but fitted on the waist and semi fitted on the bust.
Therefore we suggest you choose your size based on these areas. There is 'comfort' stretch in the fabric.
This is a great dress for pillar, hourglass, pear and will balance inverted triangles.

Adored this beautiful dress on sight after having great success with 4 of the waterfall skirts. I take an 8 in the skirts, but sadly found that although this was perfect on my 26'' waist in the Hayworth, it simply refused to zip over my 34'' bust. I sadly returned it for a 10, but found that too big.
Conclusion is that this cut is not for me and both bust and waist measurement are important when selecting size.
