The most detailed and authentic dress we have made - to date!
A stunning reproduction late 1930s dress that we have packed with vintage detailing.
This beautiful dress is based on photographs, original vintage patterns and an original dress in our archive. We havent held back in detail here and it really is one of our most intricate dresses. Consequently it takes a long time to make!
A flattering shape, this dress has the key late 1930s features of shoulder yokes, shirring under and above the bustline creating a shapely ruched bust area. A deep V shape with 6 functional self-covered buttons runs through the bodice. Skirt is made of 7 panels to give an authentic shape and is lined.
Shoulders are strong with a pleated sleeve and shoulder roll. Full bishops sleeves finish with a button cuff.
Manufactured in our soft rayon rayon crepe - we have tried to source fabric as close as possible to the original used.
Key Vintage Details:-
- 6 self covered buttons
- shoulder yokes
- shirring above & below bust
- full bishops sleeves
- side zip
- swing skirt
- fully lined throughout
Fabric: Outer & inner are 100% viscose crepe

Manufactured in Europe
The dress style would be considered a 'tailored fit'.
It is fitted under the bust through to the waist. Due to the gathers above and below bust, there is a little bit more room than on size chart.
Fabric has no stretch in it - so if you are between sizes on waist measurement - it would be advisable to select the size above.
Please refer to the table below as a size guide.
If you have purchased our Ava dress before, please choose the same size.

The devil is in the detail of this dress in ht e most gorgeous shade of sky blue. I have taken off one star because inmy opinion the sleeves are a little too large / long( though i dare say it is part of the design to have the Bishop sleeves almost obsurethe cuff) and there is (IMHO) a bit too much fabric at the cuff. I personally would have liked a slightly smaller waist while keeping the chest and across the back the same just to give it a more flattering look butthat is probably down to my body shape. Also, a tip for those not familiar with this material is don't expect to be able to wear it straight from teh box. This type of autnentic material crumpes badly during posting. That said, this is my second Evelyn dress, I adore my coral one, the colour being so unusual nowadays yet so typical of the period.
