A fabulous and elegant 1940s Pinafore dress in natural linen.
One of the key aspects of the 1940s styles is its simple and elegant style lines. Designed as a base to embellish with any array of detail including flowers and jewellery, we've based this dress on a few examples we found that we wanted to recreate.
Dress has simple bodice with V neckline, perfect for wearing over blouses. Darts go diagonally from bustline into near waist. Shoulders are quite wide to emulate the 1940s broad shoulder look. Skirt is a good swing style in 4 panels to maximise fabric usage and has handy pockets in the side seam!
Back zip - unlined.
The fabric is natural 100% linen - which means it will crease a little and requires hand wash or dry clean.
Key Features Include:-
- simple bodice with v neckline
- back zip
- 4 panel swing skirt
Wear with a myriad of our fabulous blouses - long or short sleeve to create a smashing 1940s look.
Made in Yorkshire, England.
Fabric: 100% linen (*please note that there may be some natural flaws in the fabric)
Washing instructions: cool machine wash or hand wash
Length from natural waist: approx 66cm/26inches
Fit Class - Semi-fitted
"skims the body so that is follows shape and may have close fitting areas (e.g. waist)"
This dress is free fitting on hips due to the swing skirt and fits at the waist and closely on the bust.
Fabric has no stretch in it.

I've been waiting for this dress since I saw it in the lookbook! I got my usual HoF size and it's quite a firm fit on the top half but I'm still able to wear to a blouse or t-shirt underneath. It also looks good on its own. The colour is a lovely bright shade of red, perfect for summer.
It also has pockets, which is always a plus for me!
The linen is a little see through being an open weave fabric so I've been wearing with a slip
