An elegant 1940s dinner dress fashioned purely in medium-weight navy blue crepe. She’s suitable for any occasion and could easily transition from the workplace to the dance floor. At first seemingly simple, a layer of pleats across the bust and hips with a swag draping from the waist add movement and detail. Shoulder pads, short sleeves, round collar and a slender mid-length skirt create the classic late 1940s silhouette. Pair with red lips and navy or brown pumps. Metal zippers at the centre back and the left hand side. Ribbon binding creates neat edges at the sleeves and hem. While not sheer, we recommend wearing a slip beneath the crepe
