A winter colourway for our best selling tea dance dress - named after wartime pinup 'Betty Grable'. This colourway is a black crepe on the skirt paired with a limited edition print 'Green Lily' on the upper bodice.
This is the perfect dress for dancing! A most becoming dress with a demure tie neckline - softly shirred into shape with shoulder yokes and gathered under the bust.
This dress has been designed to be as faithful as possible to the 1940s styles. A slimming fit around the waist with elegant short sleeves with a touch of shirring and a sweeping 7-gore skirt to float you through any dance.
New flutter style sleeves that drape the shoulder make this dress perfect for dancing as they do not restrict the upper arm at all.
Fully lined bodice, side zip.

This dress is free fitting on hips due to the swing skirt and skims the waist. The bust area is fairly generous but is more fitted than it looks. It is also very fitted under the bust.
Style suits pear shapes, hourglass and pillar most.

Very heavy and comfy fabrics, feels really nice.
I chanced a size smaller than usual because mine was sold-out and it fits perfectly, I even didn't need to unzip it to slip on it.
The print is lovelier irl as well.
Fyi if it can help, I'm 40ish 29 39 and the 12 is perfect. I'm short waisted though so maybe don't size down if a taller torso.
