Glamourous and nostalgic - this dress takes its influence from wartime styles but with a bit of artistic licence thrown in.

- gathers under bust and pleated into shoulder yoke
- curved waist band for that nipped in look

The perfect 1940s evening dress in a classic red crepe fabric.
Fabric: Rayon/poly mix with a touch of spandex for stretch. Bodice lined in stretch poly.
Length from waist: 29 inches approx
Fabric care: dry clean recommended
Size advice: choose by waist and hip
Our 1940s Victory Dress is very accommodating on the bust and tight on the waist and hip. Therefore we suggest you choose your size based on these areas. There is some stretch in the fabric but it isn't as stretchy as some of our other dresses.
This is a great dress for pillar, hourglass, inverted triangles and can also work well on apples! Avoid if pear.

So pleased with this purchase! It's absolutely gorgeous, very flattering and beautifully made. I had so many compliments!
Wore this dress to a Christmas work party and received several compliments. It is s bit different to what I would normally wear and I felt very confident wearing it. I love the vintage glamour look. The fit was really good. I ordered two sizes as I wasn't sure which would fit and it was very easy to return the second dress. Would highly recommend.
