1940s Evening Dress - Victory
20th Century Foxy
Glamourous and nostalgic - this dress takes its influence from wartime styles but with a bit of artistic licence thrown in.
Classic 1940s sweetheart neckline created with gathers into the shoulder yokes together with gathers under the bust. A supremely flattering neckline for those with a bust and will create volume for those who dont...
Elegant cap sleeves, strong waist band for that nipped in look and a 5 gore skirt that hugs the hips and flows into a fish tail style.
The perfect 1940s evening dress in a classic red crepe fabric.
Fabric: Rayon/poly mix with a touvh of spandex for stretch. Bodice lined in stretch poly.
Fabric care: recommend dry clean
Size advice: choose by waist and hip.
Our 1940s Victory dress is very accommodating on the bust and tight on the waist and hip. Therefore we suggest you choose your site based on these areas. There is some stretch in the fabric but it isnt as stretchy as some of our other dresses.
This is a great dress for pillar, hourglass, inverted triangles and can also work well on apples! Avoid if pear.

This dress is amazing! I have been a 'Stop staring' shopper for the last 5 years, & this new line from the 20th Century Foxy team is the first true alternative I've come across for beautiful vintage designs. This dress fits & flatters a real hourglass figure. It captures all the elegance & style of the era & has instantly become one of my favourite dresses!! More like this please :)
