Designed & manufactured in the UK 🇬🇧

Our Elegant ‘Way Out West’ Blue Gingham 50s dress is inspired by the style of the great Katharine Hepburn and a Vivienne Westwood shirt dress we have. This chic, full circle frock fastens with 18, front mother of pearl buttons. The fabric is a crease free, light-weight Poly/cotton which will still look totally fabulous when it’s time to go home. She features half sleeves with nifty buttoned cuffs and an elegant 50s, semi flared collar. This dress also comes with a cream belt but equally looks amazing when worn without. To create a full on 50s look just pop one of our fluffy Ivory petticoats underneath or wear without for that chic, shirt dress look. Or you can even pop on some sneakers and undo a few buttons for a more casual, country girl look.

This dress is non-stretch so please check our size guide below before ordering.

    An amazing dress which can be dressed up or down to suit the occasion. Wonderful material and quality in detailing and buttons. I wear mine without the petticoats and it still looks fab! Another well made dress to add to my collection from British Retro.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5


    Being a girl with broad shoulders & biceps I sized up with this dress and the fit was PERFECT. The fabric is so lovely and light it falls beautifully. Without a petticoat it was the perfect beach dress last weekend and with a petticoat it looked gorgeous and made me want to twirl!
    This was my first British Retro purchase,….my second purchase is already on its way.
