30s Loretta Bias Dress & Slip - Posey
Another exquisite 1930s style dress - inspired by a mid 1930s original and has some fantastic vintage features! This is a super limited edition in this print due to limited fabric!
The 1930s was reknown for the bias cut, detailing and use of ligher fabrics such as silk, chiffon, georgette and created this amazing 1930s style around it. It also gave us the opportunity to create the perfect vintage style slip which is also bias with bust shaping to ensure the vintage silhouette is retained (modern slips dont have this anymore)
Neckline is a high cowl - seen in many styles in the mid 30s - and has shirring detail just below which creates fullness into shirring under the bust line. Skirt is bias cut and falls in flattering lines around the body. The only fastening required is a keyhole and button fastening at the back to get over the head. The rest of the dress is easily pulled over the head - tightened at the waist by the sash belt with cream bakerlite style art deco fastening. Sleeves are also very 1930s in style - gathered at the sleeve head and has gather detail in the cuff.
But wait! What about the slip? We have included a beautiful pale pink underslip in a silk blend. This slip has been based on an original and again goes over the head and falls beautifully around the body due to its bias cut.
No zip - due to bias cut - pull over head.
