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 will mould around the hip and the bust area is free. Best choose on waist size.
For more information on fit and sizing please visit our size guide. The measurements refer to 'your' body not the garment itself. Please choose the size that most reflects your measurements.
I've been hesitating for quite a long time to get this dress as I usually tend to spend more on genuine vintage than on repro but I kept loooking back at it and am glad I pulled the trigger on my cart !
Feels very comfy even if I size down from a 12-14 to a 10, very easy to put on and I almost don't feel it except on cuffs and not feeling an outfit is one of my definitions of comfort.
This is also my 1st HoF purchase and I can tell it won't be the last, glad to find good quality repro made in decent work conditions.
Beautiful dress, I've received many compliments. Definitely harkens Joan Crawford circa 1930s. Perfect with the headband.
