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 our reproduction 1930s art deco Poppy print on rayon marocain which hangs beautifully - this dress really is the real deal!
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
- sash tie belt
- low calf length - approx 34 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.
Made in Europe
This dress is bias cut and as a result it will adapt to your shape and drape around the body. Skirt is bias so will mould around the hip and the bust area is very free. Best choose on waist size.

Beautiful dress, I've received many compliments. Definitely harkens Joan Crawford circa 1930s. Perfect with the headband.
I felt like I waited forever for this dress! I love the 30s style, how easy and comfortable it is to wear, and the gorgeous poppy print. I wish it came with the clasp belt shown in the picture instead of a sash. Then it would be nearly perfect! It runs generous in sizing due to the bias, I easily fit a 14 and could have possibly done a 12 but am self conscious of my fluff. I'll have to have the shoulders taken in, but the cowl neckline and elegant bodice and skirt are so worth it!
