A party ready version of our best selling tea dance dress we named after wartime pinup 'Betty Grable'.

This colourway is a rich Ebony Black crepe on the skirt paired with a sumptuous vintage style black lace lined in black chiffon on the upper bodice... sultry but still demure.

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. Lace is unlined on the sleeves but lined in black semi-sheer chiffon on the bodice - good for modesty!

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.

Fully lined bodice, side zip.

The fabrics are - top is a quality vintage inspired nylon lace lined in poly chiffon for modesty! Lace gathers beautifully into yokes and under bust. The bottom fabric is a poly/rayon mix with a touch of spandex which means it will stretch a little to accommodate waist variances.
