You...enchanting by day, stirring and glamorous by night. May we present our thrilling new 1930s dress we have called 'Joanie' in homage to hollywood star and 1930s style icon - Joan Crawford.
This is a captivating frock based on an original vintage 1930s garment with some modern enhancements thrown in.
This dress has some typical mid 1930s design trademarks including flattering cowl neckline, long bishops sleeves and has been cleverly cut in several bias cut panels to hug but still flatter the body. We've made it in a viscose/rayon satin - the closest fabric we could find that feels like the originals! It is so elegant and hangs beautifully - this dress really is the real deal!
New in this print: Dress features a belt which uses our splendid art deco clasp in black. This was painfully recreated from an original.
No zip - due to bias cut - pull over head.
Key 1930s features include:-
- cowl neckline
- long bishop sleeves with elastic at wrist
- keyhole at back
- art deco clasp belt
- low calf length - approx 29 inches from natural waist (this will change depending on your own shape)
Dry clean or cold hand wash - MUST dry flat due to bias panels.
*Please note - following customer feedback, hem length has been increased. The hem is irregular due to the bias cut. It will hang differently according to body shapes.
Made in Europe
Fit class: Semi -Fitted
skims the body so that is follows shape but is not tight.
This dress is bias cut and as a result it will adapt to your shape and drape around the body, skirt will mould around the hip and the bust area is free. Best choose on waist size.
Please note - the hem is irregular due to the bias cut. It will hang differently according to body shapes.

Very lovely dress! The fabric looks even more "vintage" and beautiful than on the picture (not at all like a cheap satin.) The fabric is heavy enough to hide any bulks, but not too heavy to feel comfortable in. It is getting 4 stars because 1. I find the elastic around the wrists too tight and had to remove them, and 2. The belt is placed a little too high on my waist, I am however used to this problem with a large bust.
