This truly mesmerising 1930's dress, in the softest shade of terracotta rayon, is just the piece for your seasonal wardrobe.
The rounded neckline of the dress is accented by two pleats which drape in a cowl like design. The simple shoulder line sets off the mid-length sleeves, which boast gathered and pleated smocking stitches along the top of the sleeve, which radiate into soft pleats, creating a softly pleated puffed sleeve design. The fitted bodice of the dress is accented by central radiating pleats from the central part of the cinched In waistline. Finished with a simple skirt line and button and loop fastenings along the nape.
