Now comes with a cute matching slip belt!

Made in the UK

The ‘Dee Dee’ dress in Black Watch tartan is perfect for any occasion. It features an off-the-shoulder, Bardot style, neckline which radiates vintage glamour with classical angled sleeves & a bateau, straight back neckline. This dress is made from a high quality, traditional woven tartan which has a warm feel & the bodice is satin lined & front boned with a concealed zip at the back for smooth fit. The full circle skirt section has lashings of fabric and looks great when worn with one of our fluffy Black petticoats. This dress now comes with a cute matching slip belt, but can also be worn without as there are no belt loops.

Please note- It has a fitted bodice with only a little stretch so please be careful when pulling the zip up. It is also a slightly smaller fit than our Royal Stewart version so we advise to check our size chart before ordering.

Length of skirt section is 27.5″/ 70cm. Hips are free.

5 reviews for Dee Dee Black Watch Tartan Vintage 50s Full Circle Dress

  1. Rated 5 out of 5


    I am completely in love with this dress!! It has just arrived today and I can honestly say it is one of my favourite dresses in my wardrobe now! The delivery was prompt , the fabric is beautiful , the fit is perfect , (the size guide was a huge help! ) I usually find it quite difficult to find dresses that aren’t true vintage that fit me so well as I am larger on top and very small at the waist but this dress sits perfectly !! Can’t wait to show it off over the Christmas / Hogmanay season! Thank you British retro I will Definately be returning for more!

    Ordered this dress late Thursday afternoon, arrived Saturday morning, just in time to wear it for my engagement photoshoot. The fit is great. Very well made and lovely fabric. Really really pleased.

    It was a tough decision between all the lovely dresses, but glad I went for this one. The fabric feels of a good quality and it’s flattering yet comfortable. Looks great with a petticoat underneath and perfect for dancing! I’m usually between sizes 10 and 12 but the 10 fitted great. The top half fit is rather neat, so for a larger bust I would have gone up a size. Lovely print and colours are great for a festive party dress. A good investment!

    Bought this dress for my daughter to attend a Scottish Wedding. What a beautiful dress . Well made, great quality and cut . Customer service excellent as they rushed through the dress as I had ordered the wrong size. Well worth every penny. My daughter is in love with it. Thank you British Retro will continue to buy in the future.

    I purchased this dress as I wanted a tartan dress for a Burns supper and i’m so glad I did. Absolutely stunning dress, very comfortable and very flattering. When ceilidh dancing the skirt looked beautiful as it swung round. One of the best dresses I have ever bought.
