Nautical 'Fancifull 40s' dress from Trollied Dolly

Trollied dollies fanciful forties

Like a classic shift, a 40s tea dress is a must for any vintage lover's wardrobe. The Fancifull 40s dress from Trollied Dolly provides the essential look, with the bonus of a cute nautically inspired print, perfect for all lovers of sailor style. 

The dress is made in the very flattering shape of the forties that also proved so influential on seventies design: puffed sleeves, a mock mandarin collar and a buttoned front provide the interest on the top half, while a classic pencil-skirted bottom half with fake pockets complete the style. 

Look closer and you'll see the pattern is made up of nautical motifs such as sailing boats, ships wheels, anchors and lighthouses. The same shape dress is also available in a couple more charming patterns: take your pick from blossoms and butterflies or owls

It's priced at £55.
