1940s Dress This is a fine example of a typical 1940s dress. The 40s was a decade of ultra femininity, and a fitted dress to reveal a slender and well shaped figure was the standard. This shape flares around the hip and it as tight as can be at the smallest part of the waist. The gathers that are just above the bust will emphasize the bosom to add to the frilly, curvy femininity that was well appreciated at the time.
The Mustard Grable Dress has been designed to be as faithful as possible to the 1940s styles. A slimming fit around the waist with elegant short sleeves will float you through any dance. The mustard colour is gloriously light & bright in the summer but warm enough in tone to take you through to the winter months!
