A new colourway for our best selling tea dance dress we named after wartime pinup 'Betty Grable'. This colourway is a stunning rich rust colour crepe throughout. A great colour for the autumn and winter season.

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 teal 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

Made in Europe

Fabric: 60% polyester 37% viscose 3% spandex
Washing instructions: cool hand wash or dry clean 
Length from natural waist: approx 26 inches

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.

Style suits pear shapes, hourglass and pillar most.

Fabric has comfort stretch in it.

I have more House of Foxy dresses than I can count at this point, and I'm finally making reviews. I love the consistent quality of this vintage reproduction brand and hope it never changes. This is a size accurate dress, fabric is amazing and perfect for the style. I ordered a 10, it fits well, My measurements in inches 34, 27.5, 37.5

There's a reason why I own 5 Grable dresses (and counting). This is the most flattering dress ever, no wonder it's one of HoF's best selling items! I have a small bust and do not wear any push up bras, but this dress accentuates my bust all the same. I have seen pictures of curvier ladies wearing this dress and it looks great on them too. Every girl, of every size, should own at least one Grable dress! It's classic, an instant confidence booster and will get you many compliments.
