In homage to screen siren, Rita Hayworth, we present this all new 1940s style evening/cocktail dress in our new autumnal - "Gold Leaf" - print on rayon crepe. The flow of this fabric makes this dress hang beautifully and looks really 40s!
Glamourous and nostalgic - this dress takes its influence from American 40s Hollywood wartime styles but with a bit of film noir thrown in.
Dress has a classic 1940s sweetheart neckline with grown on sleeves to give the iconic 40s silhouette. Two darts under the bust to nip in at the waist. A supremely flattering neckline for all sizes. Elegant waterfall design sarong skirt is again an iconic American 40s style and creates flattering ruching on the tummy.
Key Vintage Features:-
- sweetheart neckline
- grown on sleeves
- waterfall sarong skirt
- side zip
Fabric: 100% rayon, unlined.
Length from waist: approx 27 inches
Fabric care: dry clean or cold hand wash recommended
Made In Great Britain
This dress is fairly accommodating on hip but fitted on the waist and close fitted on the bust. Therefore we suggest you choose your size based on these areas. Consider upsizing if you are concerned - this dress benefits from being loose and the waist can be nipped in with the belt! There is no stretch in the fabric.
This is a great dress for pillar, hourglass, pear and will balance inverted triangles.
