Insight & Inspiration

A classic 1940s dress style. The design is inspired by an original CC41 dress and has that classic, feminine and elegant look that we love so much in period dramas and photos from the past. 

Easy to wear, a great price and a beautiful print, how could you say no?

Detailed Description

The 'Love Story' print for summer 2019 is an exquisite vintage reproduction floral of soft peach and sky blue. The most beautiful complimentary colours.

The top is a faux wrap, with pleats in the shoulder, meaning there is lots of room in the bust but a simple stitch in the right place will keep it in place whatever your bust size. This is not a figure hugging style, it's the opposite, it exceptionally free and easy, though note its a classic forties A-line not a flared skirt.

There is a  waist seam to nip in at the waist though and this can be accentuated using the same fabric belt. This gives the wearer that 1940s feminine silhouette.

A feature that isn't so obvious but helps the dress sit well is the collar, worn open and wide like shirt lapels. This finishes in a deep V stitched at the waist making this 1940s dress look like a wrap style.

The fabric is a mid weight 100% rayon (viscose) authentic to the period dress, it also gathers beautifully into the yokes. The print is a House of Foxy design that we simply adore.

The side zip gives easy access.

Cool hand wash or dry clean recommended to avoid shrinkage.

Fabric: 100% viscose

Size & Fit Expertise

This 1940s dress is a faux wrap style. Plenty of room in the bust and due to the wrap style this can easily be fixed in place with a stitch if you are less well endowed up top.

Expect 3% shrinkage may occur on first wash.
