Measuring Tips to Assure The Best Fit

Bust

With arms at sides, place tape measure under your arms and run it around the fullest part of the bustline and across the shoulder blades.

Waist

Find the natural crease of your waist by bending to one side. Run tape measure around your natural waistline, keeping one finger between the tape and your body for a comfortable fit.

Hips

With feet together, run tape measure around the fullest part of your hips/seat, about 7 to 8 inches below your waistline.

Inseam

For full-length pants, run tape measure along the inside of your leg, from just below the crotch to about 1 inch below the ankle.

As we are an independent and only produce small quantities our sizes vary slightly from style to style.

All garments have been carefully measured, therefore to ensure the very best fit, we suggest taking your own body measurements, whilst wearing light-weight clothing/ underwear and standing up straight, and compare these to our size chart.

We advise to check our size guide at the bottom of the page before ordering. This dress has quite a bit of stretch so if you want a super-tight bodice you may want to size down.

Wear with our English rose brooch and red petticoat as pictured. Pop on a body shaper to draw you in at the waist and create a perfect 50s silhouette.

Designed & manufactured in the UK

A totally show stopping extravaganza.

Our gracefully glamorous ‘Dee Dee’ dress in Ruby Drape, has lashings of red flowing fabric and comes with a matching 2” belt.

It features an off-the-shoulder, bardot style neckline with classical angled sleeves and a bateau straight back neckline. It is made from a high quality, stretch crepe, with a satin lined & front boned bodice and a concealed zip at the back for smooth fit. The waist does not have any belt loops which gives you the choice to wear this dress with or without it’s matching 2 inch belt. The skirt section is full circle with lashings of fabric and is worn here with one of our fluffy petticoats. The petticoat is sold separately.

    Ohhh my goodness – this is BEAUTIFUL!!! Tried it on with the red petticoat and I am thrilled! Wearing it to a military ball in a couple of weeks and I am so happy with this dress. It’s obviously high quality and at 5ft11 it sits just over my knees, I have never fallen in love with a dress before but I am in love! Thankyou xx

    Utterly stunning dress! It’s a lovely deep, rich red, and a good weight to the fabric so it drapes beautifully. I felt so elegant at the event I was attending. I’m looking forward to wearing it again soon.
