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 Scarlett tone. Fabric gathers beautifully into yokes and under bust. The touch of spandex means it will stretch a little to accommodate waist variances.
