We are utterly delight to introduce 'Jitterbug' to you. A dress influenced by the styles of the mid to late 1930s. This is a truly cheerful and sprightly dress that we are sure you will enjoy wearing.
Our new 1930s inspired 'Jitterbug' dress was designed to create a classic mid to late thirties silhouette. 30s style is very much about 'detail' - shirring, pleats, gathers, bows and frills but put together elegantly and in ways to make the most of the feminine figure.
Dress is created with a plain lower 'skirt' with a contrast print on the upper 'bodice'. Upper part of the dress is made in our signatuire *ecovero viscose crepe in seasonal midnight print.
The gorgeous plunging neckline hugs high into the back neck is created with pleats into the shoulder and feeds into rows of shirring below the bust. The pleats create plenty of room for differing bust sizes and hence protect one modesty. You will love the bow which has a contrast lining - easy to remove too if you prefer.
We know how much sleeves are appreciated - so we put much effort into creating a flattering sleeve with plenty of vintage features. Sleeves reach just below elbow - pleated into the sleeve head and finished into the cuff with two rows of delicate shirring. Sleeve has plenty of room for varied arm widths.
Lastly, the bottom is our stretch heavy crepe - flattering in dark green has a flattering amount of swing but more skims the waist and hip.
Short back zip - pull over the head.
- deep plunge neckline
- bow at centre front
- elbow length sleeves with shirring
- contrast skirt with print on upper bodice
- back zip
Fabric Upper: *ecovero viscose marocain crepe
Fabric Lower: Poly/viscose crepe with a touch of spandex for stretch
Length from natural waist: 26 inches approx
Fit class - Semi - Fitted
The skirt skims the body at the waist and hips and then flares out below. Hip measurement of skirt is approx 8 to 10cms bigger than the hip 'body' measurement for the size. Lower section of the dress is made from fabric that has a touch of stretch in it - more of a comfort stretch.
Therefore we suggest you choose your size by waist - but consider hip measurement also. Extreme pear shapes may decide to size up.
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.
This dress is super flattering and amazingly comfortable to wear. I love the shirring and puff sleeves. I may have to get another in one of the other beautiful vintage prints!
Another incredible dress! I was amazed by the vintage feel of the fabric, the pleating, and shirring. The puffed shoulders look great--I have broad shoulders but they somehow look daintier. While I didn't think I would love this print, it looks wonderful in this style. (I can definitely see this as wearable both for office work and dinner, when those are things that you can do safely.)
Two notes: It is low cut on me, so I will plan to wear a slip or camisole in case the fabric gaps. It also feels a bit snugger than some other styles around the ribcage so if you are between sizes you might want to size up.
