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.
