1940s Shirt Dress from 20th Century Foxy

Shirtfront2
The shirt dress, that staple of the 40s wardrobe, has been reproduced with varying degrees of success of late, leaving many vintage devotees hunting for something a little more authentic.


Thank goodness then for this faithful reproduction from 20th Century Foxy. Everything about this dress ticks the authenticity boxes; the label based the design on original patterns and photographs from the period to ensure they got it 100% right. Between the leg of mutton sleeves with shoulder pads, gathered back yoke, perfect cut and modern fabric designed to behave like a vintage crepe, you can't get much more spot on.
