5.00 out of 5

Made in the UK 🇬🇧 exclusively by British Retro

Full of majestic magnificence with Royal Skulls and beautifully detailed printing, Carpe Noctem, meaning seize the night, is a rockabilly must-have. This halterneck pencil dress is made from the finest quality cotton with a lined bodice and elasticated back panel which adds a little stretch to the waist and bust area but the hips are non-stretch. There is also a concealed zip at the side of the bodice and an 8″ vent at the back of the skirt to allow you to wiggle freely. 

We recommend to refer to our size guide below before ordering.

    This dress is beautifully cut, in a lightweight cotton with lining to the bodice, but will still be cool enough for summer. The print is stunning and it’s a true-to-size fit, in my opinion.
