Brand New With Tags from my personal collection, The House of Foxy 40's Lana Peplum Dress in Black. Size 14. Please choose carefully as pre-loved items are not eligible for return, refund or exchange.
This beautifully simple 1940s design takes influence from American wartime styles with it's high mandarin collar neckline running into a 'daring' keyhole and flattering peplum skirt. The beauty of the dress is the simplicity of the bodice, a very typical 1940s feature. Soft grown on sleeves which hug the shoulder gives you the option to add shoulder pads if you really want to emphasise a 1940s look.
This dress is inspired by some original garments, fashion plates, culminating in some photographs of Lana Turner during her 1940s film noir period.
We love how this dress flatters the figure and enhances the waist through the over peplum - a very common feature in the 1940s due to restrictions in fabric. The peplum was a great way of using a smaller amount of fabric to create shape.
We've made this version in our comfort stretch crepe - making this dress even more versatile.
