Our favourite late 1930s dress in new longer 'midi' length. This could be the perfect dress for pretty much all shapes! We love the flattering V neck, cap sleeves, fitted waistband and flared skirt. 

Another winning combination of top quality craftmanship combined with a plethora of 1930s features and topped off with a vintage style fabric that behaves as it should. This is one of our all time best selling styles that we have now released in a new longer length.

This is a most flattering cut and is influenced by the the late 1930s dress styles worn from 1938 through into the wartime period. This dress has been designed to be as faithful as possible to these styles.

Dress has a high back neckline which hugs the back of the neck but allows the deep plunging cross over neckline to remain demure and not too revealing. Bodice of dress is based on an original vintage 1930s nightwear garment and as a result has authentic detailed shirring gathers into the shoulder. The cute cap sleeves hug the shoulder and create an elegant silhouette. Gathers under bust creates a flattering line into a slimming fit around the waist through the fitted waistband. With a sweeping lined 7-gore skirt to float you through any tea dance. 

Key Features Include:-
- plunge neckline
- top stitching on shirring at shoulder and waist
- sweeping 7-gore skirt
- side zip

The fabrics is a mid weight 100% rayon (viscose) and as such gathers beautifully into yokes and under bust - is similar to the fabrics worn at this time. Unlined.

Made with love in Yorkshire, England.

Fabric: 100% Viscose throughout
Washing instructions: dry clean only (we recommend dry cleaning due to the bias cut panels in the skirt can become mis-shapen after washing and in particular line drying)
Length from natural waist: approx 91cm

On the fence about the Rosebud Ava

My Rosebud Collection Ava dress just arrived and I’m on the fence about keeping it. This is my 6th Ava dress so I am a big fan of the style. The fabric on this dress is beautiful. It’s an unusual, warm mauve that is really flattering, and although it’s very feminine it’s not little-girlish or sickly sweet, which I had been worried about. I have two issues with this dress. First, the description makes clear that this Ava (unlike all my others) is not lined. As I feared, this makes the dress drape more cheaply - it fits like a lower quality dress than its Ava predecessors. Second, and not mentioned in the description, this Ava is about 8” longer than my other Avas. At 5’5”, this puts the dress at my ankles. I would have absolutely loved to have had the previous-style of Ava dress in this gorgeous fabric, but with the new changes, I’m not sure that this dress is worth the price. Not sure if I will keep it or return it.
