Product Description

Newly manufactured 1940's 1950's vintage-inspired style.
Classic shirt dress for party, prom, bridal, day and evening wear.
Substantial cotton fabric which has a slight stretch.
Fitted top shirt section with collar.
Buttons down front of top.
Short elasticated sleeves.
Same fabric belt which can be tied at back, front or side as preferred (detachable).
Concealed zip for access.
Swing, flared, full circle cut skirt.
Skirt lining has net panel at hemline to give slight volume and appearance of a petticoat slip underneath.
Wear dress as it is for a 40's / 50's look for day wear.
Or wear over a netted petticoat for added volume, rockabilly style.
Please note, no separate petticoat is supplied with dress; if you wish to achieve the voluminous skirt appearance, please purchase a separate petticoat from Love Camden.
We recommend our 25" petticoats for this length of dress.
Dress is new with tag, in packet.

This dress is fabulous. Flattering and true size to the measurements given. The dress arrived very quickly and I can't wait to wear it for a special function that I ordered it for. The petticoat is comfortable and gives the skirt just the right amount of fullness for most occasions. I have now ordered a black belt to go with it and some vintage style shoes. There is a lot you can do with this dress and it could be worn for casual or more formal occasions. Would definetly use this sellar again.

Size Name: 12 Verified Purchase
I ordered this dress for a 1940s costume party. It came when it was promised and I was very pleased with the quality. It has a side zipper and also buttons up the front. It has a red slip under it that has black netting sewn on the bottom which sticks out just below the hemline, pretty cute! Let me warn you...DO NOT BE VAIN when ordering your size..this dress is a UK size and the size you order will be a bigger number than here in the US. I am 5'4", I usually wear medium shirts and would probably be described as an Athletic build and wear a Misses Size 6 in most things..I measured myself and ordered the size 12 and it fit perfectly! It hurt my feelings, but oh well! The waist is a bit higher than my natural waist (but I have a long torso for my height). If I could change one thing about the dress design it would be the sleeves, they are finished with a tighter than I would like elastic, I wish it was just a hemmed sleeve, but it doesn't affect the overall look of the dress. I'm looking forward to wearing it at my event!

I absolutely love this dress!!

It's for a housewarming 1940's party and is stunning. The red is a beautiful shade-So bright and the shape is lovely.
It came with the black belt which I wasn't expecting- A pleasant surprise which fits really well.

I read the reviews and decided to order a few sizes up to be on the safe side and was glad I did!
The buttons gape a little bit but I have G breasts so it was to be expected.
I'm a UK 18/20 and ordered two sizes up. It's really comfortable, not too tight anywhere, but would be if I'd ordered an 18.

So overall-PERFECT (but don't be shy about sizes)

The servcie and quality of the dress excellent- I loved the little patterned buttons. Unfortunately too short for my 5ft 10in height and too tight across my ample bust. Therefore, regrettably returned.

This dress is amazing, bought it for a 50's night with the petticoat and elasticated belt, gorgeous !!! It is absolutely stunning & had lots of lovely comments on it, people spent the night saying " that takes me back, I had one like this". Like other reviewers, I bought a size up and it fitted like a dream, very comfortable and I danced ALL evening. Well worth 5 stars.
