Roses Are Red Rockabilly 50s Black Pleated Tea Dress
This 50's, Rockabilly inspired dress is designed with plus size, curvy kittens in mind!
Exclusive Inspired Insanity design, created from a genuine 1956 dressmaking pattern!
It is made from a 100% cotton sateen fabric with tailored pleats and a va-va-voom voluminous skirt for a perfect mix of vintage bombshell styling.
The sleeves are fully adjustable with pull strings so you can wear them long, ruched them into cute caps or anywhere in between!
The sleeves are a loose and always comfortable Magyar (batwing) cut so they will never cut in under the arm or feel tight and restrictive. Perfect for any arm size and amazingly comfortable to wear in warmer weather!
The top is cut in a retro, bolero style with the neckline flowing down either side of the bust and joining the side seam. The bust features a wow-factor pleated cross cut which flatters all bust sizes.
It comes with a matching red belt which is not attached to the dress so it can be easily switched out to another from your own collection, if you wish.
(Belt not available for size M)
The skirt is pleated at the waist which adds plenty of extra fabric and volume to the skirt without additional bulk at the hips. The pleats can be ironed into the full length of the skirt if you prefer, for a more tailored look, or ironed out for maximum volume!
The skirt has lots of volume on it own as well as plenty of cloth to take on the most voluptuous of petticoats!
The dress is pictured with a long petticoat to show the fullness of the skirt. The petticoat is not included but is available for separate purchase from the store.
