Mary Dress - Swishy BlackRegular price £80.00 Sale price £60.00 Save £20.00
We’ve named these plains “swishy” because they are a lovely, swingable, drapey viscose. (Please read the notes below about care and sizing)
Smart, savvy, classic black Mary dress.
Ever popular, this dress can take you straight from the boardroom to your dance partners arms.
This dress is 100% viscose (known as rayon in the States), just like the old days! You’ll be seeing more Viscose around as designers and Manufacturers move away from Polyester for eco conscious reasons. It will need ironing - just like the old days...but it breathes much better. Viscose does shrink a little when it’s washed, and will bounce back once the fibers are relaxed and flattened through ironing. However... it will loose a bit of length. Our dresses lost half an inch through washing at 30 degrees and then ironing it back out. DO NOT USE THE DRYER! Dryers, even for a short blast, reach high temperatures that will shrink your viscose all over and ironing won’t help it much.
Our Mary vintage style dress recreates the late 30s to early 1940s with its gathered shoulders, puff sleeves and fitted waist. It has a great bust enhancing look, while not displaying any cleavage at all.
Other features include:
A discrete invisible zip down the centre back - Yes, we know it isn't too vintage that way, but girls were getting stuck after having their hair done when we had only a side zip. Shoulder pads for authenticity (easily removed by snipping the stitching if you so desired) A-line skirt to skim the hips and tummy. Machine Washable. MADE IN THE UK Modelled by: Luna Nightingale100% viscose Machine washable. Invisible zip down the centre back (no more getting your hair do stuck) Made in the UK
