In homage to screen siren, Rita Hayworth - we present this all new 1940s style evening/cocktail dress in our Summer Spray viscose. The flow of this fabric make 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.
The perfect 1940s evening dress in our exclusive reproduction print we call 'Summer Spray' - a sumptuous array of white, blue nad red flowers on a buttermilk yellow base. Perfect for Summer!
Fabric: 100% rayon. Unlined.
Length from waist: 27inches approx
Fabric care: recommend dry clean or cold hand wash
Made In Great Britain
This dress is very accommodating on the hip but fitted on the waist and semi-fitted on the bust. Therefore we suggest you choose your size based on these areas. There is no stretch in the fabric.
This is a great dress for pillar, hourglass, pear and will balance inverted triangles.
For more information on fit and sizing please visit our size guide. The measurements refer to 'your' body not the garment itself. Please choose the size that most reflects your measurements.
Lovely summer dress and that goes well with many colours. Perfect for this time of year x
