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

A super flattering cut based on early 1940s styles - where the higher neckline became fashionable. This dress has been designed to be as faithful as possible to these styles. This is a silhouette with a strong shoulder shape which we have enhanced by the sleeve design style, shoulder pad and a high neckline. 

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. 

By popular demand, we have made this in a longer 'midi' length - approx 91cm from waist. This 7 panel skirt has a lovely sweep and is designed to finish above the ankle on most - wear with your best shoes! We've kept this dress unlined to keep the overall weight down - you may choose to wear a slip underneath.

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
- longer (91cm) 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)
Length from natural waist: approx 91cm

Beautiful colour

Always impressed with HoF quality and this doesn’t disappoint. Authentic and feels wonderful to wear. Such a beautiful colour. It is a little long, but I’m only 5’1” so was expected. This dress will stay with me for life.
