Our favourite late 1930s dress in limited edition 1930s print 'Forest Petunia'. 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 not held back on vintage detailing.

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.

Print is a reproduction of a 1930s original - a forest green base with stylised floral details in pink, blue and yellow. This dress will take you right through all seasons when paired with correct accessories. Wear with tights and boots and a woolly cardi in cooler days or free and flowing with sandals when warmer. This dress will work all seasons!

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
- lined skirt

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. Lining is a woven viscose.
