Designed to be as authentic as possible based on original patterns and photographs, this 1940s Shirt Waister Dress is perfect for retro events or as a classic everyday dress for fans of forties fashion.
We adore this powder blue colour available for Summer 2019. Grab it while you can.
This is an authentic vintage style 1940s shirt dress. A great every day style that is practical and pretty.
The authentic 1940s collar can be buttoned right to the top or folded open in a more relaxed look.
Gathers into a low shoulder yoke at front and back.
Sleeves are gathered and are buttoned to fit.
Tucks at the bottom of the blouse into the waist seam give plenty of room for movement if you swing dance - this is a great choice of dress for lindy hoppers.
Clare the designer at House of Foxy says this 1940s shirt waister dress is the "epitome of 1940s wartime styling". We love the shell buttons she has chosen which seem the perfect choice.
To enhance that 1940s silhouette there is a sash belt to nip in at the waist.
This dress fastens with a side zip.
Fabric: 100% viscose
Cold hand wash or dry clean
