This beautiful dress is based on a combination of mid 1930s fashion drawings, photographs and original vintage 1930s items with some modern adaptations thrown in.
Dress has flattering V neckline with pleat details at the centre bustline which are reflected in the sleeve detail. Sleeves finish just above the elbow and also on the sleeve head. Bias skirt panels with extra clever darts means that this dress has no fastenings and will drape beautifully around the waist and hip.
The long sash belt is lined in contrast antique cream fabric to nip in at the waist. Could be worn on the head or around the neck too!
Lastly, floral buttonier is included.
No zip - due to bias cut - pull over head. Please note, dress is not lined so some may like to wear a vintage style slip underneath.

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.

I am so glad I bought this dress. She is so gorgeous in person. I love the color, the cut, the fabric. It's very comfortable and it drapes nicely on the body. I want to get the pink one also. Beautiful packaging! Love the brooch.
I am 37" chest and 30" waist. Size 12 fits me perfectly.
This is a seriously stunning dress; can’t recommend it highly enough. It looks beautiful when worn (adore the dual coloured waist tie, as it reminds me of a true vintage dress I once owned) & is also comfortable. Plus, it comes with the little flower brooch (removable) which is always a nice touch.
I was very stuck on sizing, as my bust/waist measurements are between the UK8-10 and my hips at the far end of the UK12. I reached out to the HoF customer services for advice, & they were extremely helpful & quick to respond. They recommended the UK10 based on my waist measurement (27”), & that was spot on. There’s a bit of wiggle room at the waist which is solved by the tie.
If you’re bottom heavy, definitely go by the waist measurement - the dress isn’t fitted at the hips at all.
I also sometimes struggle with 3/4 length sleeves being too tight at the elbows, but thankfully had no issues here.
