Cut in a stretch crepe, the Red Betty Dress is a very versatile colour. Gloriously light and bright in the summer but warm enough in tone to take you through to the winter months!
A most becoming dress with an iconic 1940s ‘sweetheart’ shape with shoulder yokes and gathers above and below the bust. This dress has been designed to be as faithful as possible to the 1940s styles. A slimming fit around the waist with elegant short sleeves with a touch of shirring and a sweeping 7-gore skirt to float you through any dance. The flutter style sleeves that drape the shoulder also make this dress perfect for dancing as they do not restrict the upper arm at all.
Finally, this dress features a fully lined upper bodice and side zip.
The fabric is a stretch crepe in a gorgeous red. The fabric gathers beautifully into yokes and underbust. The touch of spandex means it will stretch a little to accommodate waist variances but please check the size chart before ordering.

This dress is pretty much free fitting on hips due to the swing skirt and skims the waist. The bust area is fairly generous but is more fitted than it looks. It is also very fitted under the bust. Style suits pear shapes, hourglass and pillar most.
The fabric has a comfort stretch in it so if you are between sizes it would be advisable to select the size above.
