The famous "lady vintage" audrey hepburn dress features a full 1950s style flared skirt, and has a high neck at the front and back which creates an extremely classy and elegant look. There is a concealed zip fastening at the back and the dresses come complete with a slim black suede effect belt. The dresses are true 1950s length (approximately 43 inches from shoulder to hem in a size 8). We have photographed the dress using a petticoat, which helps to show the fullness of the skirt. Although not essential to wear with one, they really do create an extremely vintage look.. We only use the best quality materials in our dresses, and this cotton sateen has excellent stretch. This dress is not lined. Made in london. 97% cotton / 3% elastine machine washable at 30 degrees (delicate wash). Do not hand wash, do not soak, do not tumble dry.
