This fabulous dress was made in the 1940s from a lightweight navy blue wool. It was cut in the classic hourglass silhouette of the period with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The overhang pleat at the shoulders and collarless neckline emphasise the strong lines of the piece and beautiful firing opens up to inverted pleats in the skirt to give it great swish and movement. The dress fastens with three buttons and a waist hook set into an unusual asymmetric triangular placket. The edge of the placket, neckline, diagonal buttonholes and trim on the turn up cuffs have been decorated with gorgeous contrasting striped fabric in shades of off white and pale blue to add a wonderful accent. And even better, this dress comes in a rare true Volup size!

This garment is available to purchase with or without dress shields. These clever little contraptions have been made by our seamstress to an original 1940s pattern and can be simply attached to your garment by tack stitching at the corners of the underarm seam, pinning (we wouldn’t recommend that, it hurts if it goes wrong, so if you try this, it is at your own risk only) or inserting tiny poppers. They then stand ready to absorb any sweat and body odours as needed and you can simply detach and launder them instead of your garment, saving you a fortune in dry cleaning bills.

 

They are equally suitable for suits, blazers and dresses and come in pure white cotton.

 

They are universally sized and super easy to use even for a sewing novice as only a couple of tiny stitches are required at each side to secure them.

 

We sell Dress Shields as a standalone item or at a discount if you purchase them with a garment. We will select the appropriate type to match the garment you have purchased.
