Product Description

The 'Bonny Betsy' dress is new for British Retro's Autumn/ Winter 2014-15 collection and comes with a matching head scarf. It is a highland salute to the 1950's made from a chic Royal Stewart brushed Tartan, which has a really warm feel to it. This dress has a fitted bodice which seamlessly draws you in at the waist with a cute matching sash that can be looped into a bow at the back or front for a more kitsch feel, or you can even add your own belt. The beautifully gathered skirt is full circle with lashings of fabric to swish and swirl about in. This dress has a real 1940s feel without the petticoat and a full on fifties feel with the 25" petticoat worn underneath, as shown in the photos. Please note, the petticoat is not included in this sale, but can be purchased separately from us. All of our dresses are carefully crafted by a team of highly skilled dressmakers in a well-established London factory. We only make small quantities of each design, so all you lovely girls can be reassured you won't be showing up wearing the same frock. All our dresses are UK size and have been carefully measured to ensure the very best fit so we suggest before you make a purchase, to take your own body measurements while wearing light-weight clothing or underwear and standing up straight. The length of this dress is 42.5 inches from shoulder to hem and is a UK size. Size 8: bust 32in, waist 27in. Size 10: bust 34in, waist 29in. Size 12: bust 36in, waist 30in. Size 14: bust 38in, waist 31.5in. Size 16: bust 40in, waist 33.5in. Size 18: bust 42in, waist 36in.

I ordered this dress for 2013/14 New Years Eve Ball with the black net petticoat. I ordered in a size 14 and it fits absolutely perfectly. The Stewart tartan is ideal for the festive season. Its a heavyweight cloth so when I spin round the dress looks and moves fabulously. Its exceptionally well made in the UK. Its finished beautifully. I was so absolutely delighted I ordered the same dress in the burgundy and green tartan. I can't wait to get on the dance floor as it will look amazing. Beautiful, glamorous and traditional. Bring on the New Year!!!! Fantastic service from British retro I would heartily recommend them. Service second to none. Thanks British Retro more please.........

I bought this for my daughter as I have the wiggle version for myself. The quality of these dresses is beautiful, they are so well made they make you feel beautiful when you wear them. True to size - I got my daughter a size 16 and it's a fabulous fit with a bit of room to breathe. My daughter looks really flirty and feminine in this and the swing effect is stunning. I'm really impressed with the 2 dresses I have purchased from British Retro, happy to recommend to everyone!

Size Name: 18 Verified Purchase
I have purchased this dress for New Years Eve 2013\14 the material and wonderful finish are fantastic, the only slight complaint I have is that the concealed zip has been placed too near the edge of the material and cannot be ziped up or down without help, even before putting the dress on the zip sticks in two places on the material while unzipping and the same when zipping up. But this is only a minor matter to me as I can get the dress on and off by putting on and off fully zipped over my head, so will do this on the night before doing my hair. I live in Spain and the dress was delivered in the time scale stated and once unpacked I hung it up and the minor creases caused in transportation dropped straight out.
I think I have been unlucky over the zip situation, but that has not stopped me from giving the dress 5 stars as the style and finish of the dres is beautiful, I fully recommend the dress and the Company and wonderful having this made in the UK. Thank you, can't wait to wear the dress!
