In homage to the iconic Horrockses dresses of the 1950s - we have produced our 'Bella' dress in another reproduction 1950s print - a stripe floral. If you know Horrockses (and if you dont - give it a research), they were famous in the fifties for their floral cotton dresses and often used border prints or stripes to create a specific look.

Here we have emulated that look using our fabulous Bella 1950s dress style to create the stripes across the skirt and chevron shape in the bodice. Although it cannot match perfectly on the bodice because we girls need darts, its a gorgeous effect and very reminiscent of this era. There's a lot of clever cutting in this one to match up these specific stripes both across the skirt panels and bodice. Big applause to Annette in our cutting room for this one!

These dresses are being made here in our onsite factory.

So - the specifics....this gorgeous dress has a flattering wide V neckline and 'grown on' short sleves with a touch of ruching for a nice gathered effect. Back is also a V with back zip. Bodice is fitted and flows into a full gathered skirt. 

We havent lined this because we need to utilise the mechanical stretch in the fabric for modern fit requirements AND it keeps it cool for summer. This dress uses over 2 metres of fabric which has been specially printed. Limited edition and just for Foxy fans!

This has all the hallmarks of the 1950s:-
- flattering wide V neckline with deep darts into waist panel
- full gathered skirt
- back zip
- pockets in skirt (yes! pockets!!!)
