This is a classic 1940s style shirt dress in striking red! It has a side zip opening with three functional tortoiseshell buttons at the front to give it a retro look. A detachable tie at the waist and a slightly flared knee-length skirt is elegant and creates a beautifully feminine silhouette. A tuck at the bottom of the blouse to the waistline adds a softer look, and the slightly stretchy mid-weight fabric is comfortable in all seasons. It’s a timeless, flattering piece that can be worn for work, special occasions and dancing! The swing skirt falls at 26 inches from the natural waistline. Available in sizes 8 -18

  • Unlined 
  • Material: Poly/Viscose/Elastane for stretch.
  • Front button closure and side zip.

Happiness wrapped in a dress

There are so many shirt dresses out there; which one do you go for when your budget dictates the quantity you can buy! I choose this one by Pretty Retro in the end and, my, I was not disappointed with my choice ❤️ Quality fabric and a great cut, it hung beautifully. I was stunned at how good it was and am in lurve! So, if you are wanting a shirt dress, can only afford one or want to add to your collection, buy this one and you will be jumping up and down with full on pleasureeeee!! When means allow, I will definitely be buying another in a different colour. And I expect I will be buying from Weekend Doll whose style variety, price ranges and service are all what you want from online ordering - a great place and experience; big thanks Weekend Doll x

Lovely dress!

I am very happy with this dress. Beautiful red colour and nice soft material. Lovely fit too. I bought the 14 as the 12 was out of stock and good thing too as I think the 12 would have been a tad too tight. As always the customer service was great and the dress arrived right away beautifully packaged.
