1940s Vintage Tribute Floral Tea Dress in Russet Orange
This deep rust orange or russet ditsy floral frock looks like it has just stepped out of the forties era. Replicated from an original rationed 11011 or "double elevens" dress, the Tribute is authentic, feminine and flattering.
The front bodice has a square neckline with light gathering towards the shoulders. There is a horizontal broad tuck flap that has a double loop tie which can be knotted as you like, and an inverted V waist seam that extends to the sides. Soft gathers into the bust cups.
The straight sleeves hug the upper arm. Small shoulder pads help give the slightly masculine wartime silhouette. A concealed side zip to fasten.
At the back, there is an additional opening at the neckline with silver metal hooks and hand-worked loops exactly like our original. This dress also has a waist-flattering horizontal seam, and the skirt itself has plenty of swing.
Like all our Socialite range, only very small numbers are produced to keep them exclusive. The Tribute dress comes in two other stunning floral prints.
Twill weave polyester fabric that falls beautifully and is easy to care for.
The bodice is a snug fit across the back and shoulders. We would recommend going up a size if you have a large bust or broader shoulders.
Our model Alice is 5ft 3 and wears a UK 10.
