‘Matilda’ 50’s Vintage Style Pencil Dress
This 50’s style pencil dress is made from a soft, warm feel, woven, Navy Stewart Tartan. This dress is small fit and has no stretch. The sizing is different to our ‘Wilma Wallace’ dress which is a more generous fit. Therefore to ensure you choose the correct size please refer to the size guide below.
The dress features, 3/4 Dolman sleeves, a wide neckline with a round collar and four chic Tortoise shell buttons down the front bodice which are not just for show and can be undone for a more casual look. There is an empire seam under the bust and 2 darts on each side of the skirt and a 12” vent at the back of the skirt and a has a zip on the back of the bodice. This dress is meant to be very tight fitting due to being based on authentic 1950s patterns and looks very flattering this way.
The fit is typically small so do not feel ashamed to go a size up
Our sizes vary slightly from the high street due to being based on authentic 1950’s pattern. All garments have been carefully measured, therefore to ensure the very best fit, we suggest taking your own body measurements, whilst wearing light-weight clothing/ underwear and standing up straight, and compare these to our size chart.
