The Pretty Hostess Dress
The perfect vintage style dress for tea parties, picnics or even better - the cocktail party!
The fit on this dress creates a classic vintage 40s/50s silhouette. We love the wing collar that frames the face and the buttoned front.
Pleated above and below bust emphasises ones assets and together with the full skirt and waist seam creates a further 'nipped in' look. The 3 quarter full skirt gives a full sweep and grown-on sleeve with turn-up 'hugs' the shoulder.
Washing Instructions: 30 degrees machine wash
Length from natural waist: approx 27 inches
There is stretch in the fabric but choose by waist if unsure of size.

The sleeve hole is very narrow, so in the part of arms dresses are too tight. Otherwise the cut of dresses is good. What a pity.
This is one of the most flattering dresses I've ever owned. Beautifully cut, simple but glamorous and versatile. I've worn this for several important events and it has never let me down. I currently have this dress in black but am hoping to buy it in other colourways and would love to see a version with 3/4 sleeves for autumn/winter.
