Another exquisite 1930s style dress - inspired by a mid 1930s original and has some fantastic vintage features! This is a limited edition
The 1930s was reknown for the bias cut, detailing and use of ligher fabrics such as silk, chiffon and georgette. We found this delightful rayon georgette in our signature 1930s poppy print and created this new amazing 1930s style around it. It also gave us the opportunity to create the perfect vintage style slip which is also bias with bust shaping to ensure the vintage silhouette is retained (modern slips dont have this anymore)
Neckline is a high cowl - seen in many styles in the mid 30s - and has shirring detail just below which creates fullness into shirring under the bust line. Skirt is bias cut and falls in flattering lines around the body. The only fastening required is a keyhole and button fastening at the back to get over the head. The rest of the dress is easily pulled over the head - tightened at the waist by the sash belt with cream bakerlite style art deco fastening. Sleeves are also very 1930s in style - gathered at the sleeve head and has gather detail in the cuff.
But wait! What about the slip? We have included a beautiful black underslip in soft viscose. This slip has been based on an original and again goes over the head and falls beautifully around the body due to its bias cut.
No zip - due to bias cut - pull over head.
Key 1930s features include:-
- high cowl neckline
- sleeves with gather detail
- bias skirt
- sash belt with art deco clasp
- low calf length - approx 77 cms from natural waist (NB: this will change depending on your own shape due to the bias nature of the garment)
- under slip
Dry clean or cold hand wash - MUST dry flat due to bias panels.

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.
