  • The Brighton Dress has a touch of the demure look with a knee-length hem, generous sleeves and modest neckline. An a-line skirt also makes this the perfect dress to twirl in.
  • Designed by our in-house team, it is inspired by 1950s fashion, the New Look and some of our favourite screen heroines.
  • We have put room in the bust and a flattering scoop neck whilst nipping in at the waist and giving the dress a beautiful ruched skirt. The scoop neckline at the back finishes high enough to hide your bra strap
  • Discreetly stitched into the side seams of the skirt you will find two generous pockets, designed to hold the largest of phones; the line of the dress won't be ruined due to the fullness of the skirt.
  • 100% organic cotton (GOTS certified, ensuring the production process has minimal impact of the environment)
  • Machine washable
  • Made in Britain


  • This dress is roomy in the bust on purpose. Throughout our range we design for different body shapes and 'Brighton' is for our curvy busty ladies.
  • If you wear a small cup size bra you will find one of our other dresses such as the Blackpool a better fit otherwise if you stick with this one you might want to make a small alteration to take it in.
  • The dress is designed to be a close fit at the high waist so the gathers will fall over the tummy and hips.

Material & Provenance

100% GOTS certified organic cotton


The Brighton Dress

Revival Retro carefully considers its fabric selection. Not only must the fabric be appropriate for the garment and desirable by our customers, we also consider impact on the environment, where and how it is made.

This summer dress is made from an organic cotton that is G.O.T.S certified.

With GOTS certification we know that every part of the process of creating this cotton has been inspected. Not all cottons are created equally! 

We chose cotton because it is a natural fibre which many people value in hotter weather and because it is practical and easy. We believe clothing should last and part of enjoying wearing something time and again means the ability to machine wash a garment plays an important part in facilitating that.    


This dress was Made in Britain, in fact it was made locally in London. We have a great relationship with our factories and are regularly in and out so we get to know who made our clothes.

At the heart of any business is it’s people and Team Revival care and are involved in the design and decision making over every garment we produce. 

This dress was designed by Rowena, Fran our expert pattern cutter helped us realise our design ideas, Julie made our sample and Bill oversees our small batch production in East London. Our small business takes a considered approach with our production and we care deeply about what we make and why it is of value.
