House of Foxy 40s Gracie Wrap Dress - Bloomsbury

House of Foxy 40s Gracie Wrap Dress - Bloomsbury



Named after one of our favourite Char ladies ;-) - Gracie is a rework of our very first 1940s style day dress. Influenced by an original CC41 dress and photos - this is a real nod to wartime styles - very wearable, flattering and pretty.

Another very flattering cut which is a classic take on the shirt dress. The wrap style shirt neckline combined with the sleeves creates the a classic wartime, early 1940s silhouette..

Dress has a shirt lapels with wrap but are fixed into the waist - pleats on the shoulder give extra bust room. Sleeves are grown on and have a small turn-up. Skirt is the classic 1940s style - not too much swing but not a wiggle either. We love to nip in the waist with the stunning belt with self covered buckle.

Key Features Include:-
- faux shirt style
- grown on sleeves
- self covered belt to nip in
- side zip

The fabrics is a mid weight 100% rayon (viscose) and as such gathers beautifully into yokes and under bust - is similar to the fabrics worn at this time. Print is our exclusive late 30s reproduction print we have called 'Bloomsbury'. A sumptuous floral print in the jewel colours. Really authentic!
