Hello Ms Grable! What's this new dress you've got yourself? A new neckline you say? Fancy!

A NEW version of our best selling tea dance dress named after wartime pinup 'Betty Grable'. This is Betty! She has a new neckline - the iconic 1940s 'sweetheart' shape with shoulder yokes and gathers above and below the bust but with the same 7 panel flared skirt and flutter sleeves so love by Grable Dress fans!

A perfect dress for dancing! With a slimming fit around the waist created by an empire line alongside waistline shaping . Dress also has the iconic and elegant short flutter sleeves that drape the shoulder without restricting arm movement.  

Fully lined upper bodice, side zip.

The fabric is a stretch crepe in a sumptuous red. Fabric gathers beautifully into yokes and under bust. The touch of spandex means it will stretch a little to accommodate waist variances.  

Key Features Include:-
- sweetheart style neckline
- gathers into shoulder yokes and under bust
- sweeping 7-gore skirt
- side zip
- flutter sleeves with whip stitch

Made in Europe

Fabric: poly/viscose with  4% spandex
Washing instructions: cool hand wash or dry clean

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.

Fabric has a comfort stretch in it.

Such a flattering dress. Lovely to wear all day. I wore it to Goodwood Revival and it doesn’t crease. Go for a size up as it is tight fitting

It's a great dress, but size up. My usual size was too tight in the bust.
