1940s DRESS | RITA


Insight & Inspiration

A traditional 40s tea dress that is flattering and feminine. It is a joy to wear everyday or dressed up with accessories and red lips for special occasions. 

Detailed Description

This sweet vintage style dress is so surprisingly versatile you won't believe it! 

The dress nips in under the bust and very high on the waist before flaring out into a 7-panel A-line skirt which also has pockets!

The Rita is fastened with an invisible side zip and is unlined, so is perfect for wearing with under layers and coloured tights!

The cap tulip sleeves allow for complete ease of movement, and the deep cross over V neck will suit all busts.  Some of you may find you need a little stitch or discreet pinning at the bust to keep everything securely in place.

For accessories, it will work superbly with any block colour cardigan. To have a look at our current knitwear options, click here.

Size & Fit Expertise

We think this will work beautifully on all body shapes, especially hourglasses and pears, as it nips in at the waist.  Therefore please choose your size according to waist measurement (in cm).
