The Navy Polka Dot Flutter Sleeve Claudia Dress is a draped semi-sheer georgette dress with sash tie waist. This new polka dotted Claudia dress is effortlessly romantic. The soft fabric floats and moves beautifully. As it is semi-sheer, this version also comes with a plain navy slip to wear underneath (if you so wish!).
The dress features a V neck which can be either modest or more daring, depending on how you tweak the gathers which run through the body of the dress. There is also a split in the front so you can flash just a hint of leg as you walk! You’ll also find hidden pockets – our all-time favourite finishing touch!
The Claudia Dress perfectly combines our desire to look glamorous but still be comfortable! Cleverly designed, the dress is one size fits most, up to a 46″ bust. This is because the dress is cut with lots of fabric through the body, which drapes beautifully. The sash belt gathers everything in for an elegant hourglass shape when you tie it at the waist. You can choose how and where you tie the sash for a fit tailored to you. This ingenious design means you can pretty much always grab this dress and throw it on!
The transformation from unflattering smock shape to luxuriously draped dress has to be seen to be believed! Take a peek through the photos to see what the dress looks like before the sash is tied. Tying the sash is easy – simply wrap it around your body once or twice (it’s up to you!) and knot it. Just try to ensure the sash isn’t twisted and that it is lying flat.

Inspired by a dress worn by Barbara Stanwyck in the 1944 Film Noir drama Double Indemnity and lots of classic loungewear from the era. We gave our version the Deadly treatment to vamp it up even more! This flutter sleeve version is just as dramatic as our original Bishop Sleeve version but a little cooler for warmer days!
This dress is a signature piece for the Alexandra King for Deadly is the Female Collection. Alexandra and Claudia worked together to find Deadly’s core aesthetic and create a collection that captures “Deadly Style”. Film Noir Femme Fatales have inspired this collection, blended with our desire to balance sassy style with comfort and wearability. Alexandra hand makes each piece here in Somerset, and with a background in bespoke Bridal dresses, you can be sure that the quality and finish are excellent.

This dress is a dream! So easy to wear casually or style up for a special occasion, it’s incredibly comfortable, flatters every figure, and is a wardrobe staple that can be relied upon even if your dress size fluctuates. I’m a U.K. 18-20 and it fits me beautifully, even the slip which has a great amount of stretch to it. And since it’s one size fits most I’ll be able to lend it to any of my sisters or friends who need to borrow a fabulous frock! Plus, I absolutely love that it is made in the U.K.
