Insight & Inspiration

A fantastic 1940s dress, every bit a timeless and classic favouriteas well as comfortable and easy to wear.

Choose between short sleeve or longer sleeve options in this classic black dress.

Detailed Description

You will be impressed by the quality of the fabric, a cotton feeling rayon knit that is smooth and to the touch. It's light enough to wear with bare legs in the summer but works equally well with thick tights and an underslip. For us Brit girls who never know what the weather will do next, this is a wonderful versatile dress sure to be a staple in any wardrobe!

This dress has a V neckline with darted short or long sleeves, depending on your choice. There is a gathering at the top of the shoulder, and darts extend from under the bust to the fullness of the hips, creating a nipped in looking waist. The skirt has a kicky wide a-line shape, and the back is simple and fitted only with a waist seam. The fabric has a good deal of stretch and the dress looks tailored and shapely in your correct size. Trashy Diva have refined this style many times over the years to achieve this popular fit.

For such a simple dress, you will be surprised by how many compliments it gets. You can just throw it on and it needs very little extra effort. We have found it to be functional, versatile and extremely well wearing.

Currently only available in black- choose from short or longer sleeved versions.

Size & Fit Expertise

We are yet to find a shape this dress doesn't work for!


There is a lot of stretch in the fabric, so if you want to feel a little more cinched in, then by all means order the smaller of the two sizes you normally go between.
