A winning combination of top quality craftmanship combined with a plethora of authentic features. Prepare to feel like a princess!

This is a super flattering cut based on early 1940s styles - where the higher neckline became fashionable paired with strong shoulders and a nipped in waist. This dress has been designed to be as faithful as possible to these late 1930s and wartime styles. This is a strong and authentic silhouette.

You will notice the lovely style details of the shirring at the shoulder and the pleats under the bust that flow into the V shape waist panel. This has a real figure enhancing effect. Sleeves are short with a strong shoulder shape enhanced by the gathers at sleeve head combined with a small shoulder pad. High neckline style will turn into a high slight cowl and there is a keyhole and button fastening at the back.

Skirt is standard 1940s length - reaching safely below the knees on most (approx 28 inches from natural waist). This 7 panel skirt has a lovely sweep and there is a side zip.

Key Features Include:-
- high neckline with back keyhole detail
- shirring detail shoulder & pleats under bust
- short sleeves with tuck at cuff and gathers into shoulder
- small shoulder pad
- 7-gore skirt
- side zip
- unlined

The fabric 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. 

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 which can become mis-shapen after washing and in particular line drying)

I had a moment earlier to try it on and just fell in love with it. This is such a beautiful dress. Once more, because I live somewhere with blazing summers and arctic winters, this is a great pick for those who love soft, feminine loveliness. The cut is perfection!!!!

So beautiful 🌹

As soon as I saw H.O.F.'s new 2024 rosebud line, I knew I had to to have the Girl Friday dress (yes, even after splurging out on the new Girl Friday duck egg dress! 😳) I've searched a long time for the right rose print dress and this was love at first sight. The neckline, draped bust and sleeves detail are so flattering and the colour is perfect - neither a sugar pink which would be too much or a wishy 'dusky' (i.e grey pink) tone, but a gorgeous soft warm pink that looks so feminine. It's a yes from me 💖 Thank you Foxy, you've done it again!

Thank you for your lovely review! We're thrilled to hear that you love our new print!
