Beautiful A-line dress in a simple 1940s vintage cut from The Seamstress of Bloomsbury.

Please note that this dress is smaller in size and is best suited for a smaller or medium sized bust.

This beautiful dress oozes discreet elegance and vintage charm.

The dress is from an original vintage pattern, and it is clearly visible in the fine details. The dress has a V-neck and 4 covered buttons down to the waist, which beautifully highlight the waist. The buttons are not only for decoration, but to make it easier to get into the dress, there is also a zip on the side.

The sleeves have a slight wrinkle which gives the nice vintage aesthetic. The wide, long "balloon sleeves" close with 2 covered buttons at the wrist.

The dress is beautifully waisted, and also has a ribbon which is tied at the back. This gives you a really beautiful silhouette as well as the fine bow detail.

The skirt is an A-shape, which falls beautifully and flatteringly down the hips and thighs. It is a really wonderful dress that can be used for everyday and parties.

  • Beautiful dress in authentic 1940s style
  • Style with fine accessories such as earrings and hair flower, for a festive vintage look.

Material: 100% rayon crepe de chine (natural material). This material has no stretch.

A guide to finding your right size at Mondo Kaos

You will find a size guide on each product in the photo gallery.

Below we describe how exactly you take your measurements so that you can find out which size to buy.

First of all, be aware that most of our size guides are based on your measurements, and not the clothes. When our clothes in Mondo Kaos are created to sit close to the body, these measurements are usually largely the same as what you should expect based on your body measurements. If you would like more freedom of movement or you would like it to fit smaller, we recommend you go up a size.

How to find your goals:

If you find it difficult to measure yourself, you can possibly measure a piece of clothing that fits as you want it to. The clothes must not have stretch unless you buy other clothes with the same amount of stretch.

If you take your own body measurements, we recommend that you stand in front of a mirror, so it is easier to keep an eye on the measuring tape not sitting at an angle and that it is in the correct place.

Chest measurements: Wear your favorite bra / the bra you would use for this particular piece of clothing, and measure all the way around where you are widest.

Waist measurement: Measure your natural waist ie. where you are smallest. Be aware that our clothes are tailored with the natural waist in mind, rather than the lower waist as is the case in modern fashion. This is approx. 2 cm above the navel on the narrowest part.
Measure where the measuring tape is not pulled up or down without the target becoming larger, that is your natural waist.

Hip size: Opposite waist - where you are widest. For most people, this is not where your hip bones are, but a little further down. Try your hand at where you are widest is your hip target.

Inseam measures For trousers, stride length is often used. It is measured on the inside of the leg, from the crotch down. Or crotch height, from the crotch up to the waist.

We strongly recommend that you measure yourself before ordering. We recommend that you keep in mind that shape is more important than exact size, as certain garments will flatter different types of figures. 

Variations in size: "Now I have measured, and then the clothes still do not fit!" There will sometimes be variations in the product and product measurements - in the manufacturing industry this is called 'tolerance'. This is due to many factors, including dyeing, fabric type as well as fabrication of the fabric, which batch of fabric, natural fibers may vary, placement of buttons and the specific craft. The clothes are made by people and it is measured by people and clothes of the same size when measured can vary.
