The stunning and forever popular 1945 Peggy Wrap dress is now available in over 20 different prints.

From petite sizes to maternity wear, there is a Peggy Wrap dress for everyone. This dress finishes 2” below the knee and is made in 40's Rayon Crepe de Chine fabric, which is easy to care for, too. This fabric is a 100% natural fibre so no synthetic yarn or Lycra in this garment.  
It's London 1939 and England is on the brink of World War II…… Aged 14, Lilian Wells is apprenticed to a Bloomsbury dressmaker. She has little education but can already draw and paint and hand sew and embroider as if she were professionally trained. It is her natural gift. As she masters the seamstress’s art, her life seems to be clearly mapped out - she will sew beautiful frocks for the aristocratic families that inhabit the mansions around Bloomsbury Square. … we are extremely privileged to have known Miss Lilian Wells, to have worked with her, and to acknowledge the tradition of her skills …… and now, in keeping with her wishes, we revive her original 1940’s patterns and designs … and are pleased we can share them with you.
