A dress that’s blessed with effortless elegance, our ‘Way Out West’ Royal Stewart Tartan swing dress. It is inspired by the style of the great Katharine Hepburn and a Vivienne Westwood shirt dress we have. This chic, full circle dress fastens all the way down with vintage look brass coloured buttons and also comes with a matching brass buckled belt. She is made from a traditional Royal Stewart Tartan and features half sleeves with nifty buttoned cuffs and an elegant 50s, semi flared collar.  To create a full on 50s look just pop one of our fluffy black or red petticoats underneath or wear without for that chic, shirt dress look.

This dress is a slightly more generous fit than our Black Watch version due to the fabric being a bit looser and has a little stretch.

    Dear British Retro, just stop producing gorgeous frocks. I am running out of adjectives to describe how fantastic your dresses are.

    For heaven’s sake make a dud just so I can take a break from “gorgeously designed, beautifully fitting and makes me feel amazing” have a dress where I can say “I looked like a potato” I am running out of space in my wardrobe.

    British Retro have once again decided against making me a potato and this dress is stunning. It works with both the ivory and black petticoat underneath.

    This is just the most gorgeous winter frock. Perfect for day or evening! Lovely warm material for cold wintry days. I team mine with a green cardigan, but black also works well. Also team with my fullest, frothiest black petticoat. Look and feel my best vintage glam wearing this!
    Price is fantastic for the swathes of material and style.
    Complimented by complete strangers when wearing, which is very kind and also very uplifting.
    Thank you British Retro, you won’t regret your purchase with this fabulous frock.

    Lovely dress! True to size, fits perfectly 🙂 Can’t wait to wear it during Christmas season, but I see no reason not to wear it all year long <3

    I have just ordered my first British Retro dress and I am in love! You’ve earned yourself a new devotee 😉 the price is so reasonable, the colors are a stand-out, the material is so nice (especially for winter) and you can wash them without bothering with dry cleaning or ironing! I also love that the belt can cinch in a far as you need it to. The sleeves are a bit snug but not too bad. Amazing product which looks beautiful on – I will 100% be back for more tartan circle dresses!!

    The dresses arrived yesterday. OMG they are amazing! When I tried them and show myself to my husband he exclaimed: WOW! And then he said that he wants me to get more dresses like this.I have never felt and looked more beautiful. I am amazed by the quality of the fabric and these tags are so sweet. Just love them! Thank you for helpful assistance of Customer Service Team who patiently responded to my queries regarding the lengths of bodices as I am a tall girl. To be honest, the dresses fit perfect and the length is just below the knee which I love! Just one suggestion, if you could include the legth of bodice in your size chart that would be perfect. Thank you and keep sewing the most amazing dresses that touch woman’s heart.
