A new colourway for our best selling tea dance dress we named after wartime pinup 'Betty Grable'. This colourway is a lovely Berry colour crepe throughout . A great colour for Autumn which looks great with Mustard & Navy.
This is the perfect dress for dancing! A most becoming dress with a demure tie neckline - softly shirred into shape with shoulder yokes and gathered under the bust.
This dress has been designed to be as faithful as possible to the 1940s styles. A slimming fit around the waist with elegant short sleeves with a touch of shirring and a sweeping 7-gore skirt to float you through any dance.
New flutter style sleeves that drape the shoulder make this dress perfect for dancing as they do not restrict the upper arm at all.
Self lined bodice, side zip.
The fabric is a stretch crepe in a very vintage inspired Berry tone. Fabric gathers beautifully into yokes and under bust. The touch of spandex means it will stretch a little to accommodate waist variances.
Key Features Include:-
- keyhole neckline with tie
- gathers into shoulder yokes and under bust
- sweeping 7-gore skirt
- side zip
- flutter sleeves with whip stitch

This dress is free fitting on hips due to the swing skirt and skims the waist. The bust area is fairly generous but is more fitted than it looks. It is also very fitted under the bust.

Fabric has comfort stretch in it.

A lovely dress, have worn it tons of times during this summer. Really comfortable, great colour, love the sleeves!
Good purchase. The dress looks similar to the pictures and description on the website, the fabric feels nice and heavy and the seams and details look and feel like quality work . However, although this might be partially due to the nature of the fabric, i ordered a size 8 (which usually fits me tight) and the dress fits otherwise well but is very loose around my waist. After i get some adjustments done I'm sure it'll be my new favourite.
