Fab Frock Friday! The 1940s tea dress

I've found some lovely examples of a 1940s tea dress this month. The first is this luscious number from Warehouse.
Warehouse £48
It has all the lovely detailing of a forties frock; midi length, shoulder puffs, button through and collar. Available from Warehouse for £48.

Another lovely dress is this one from Electric Gypsy. It's made to an original 1940s pattern and comes in some gorgeous fabrics in modern sizes 8-16. A bit steeper at £68 but a beautiful, original handmade dress.
Electric Gypsy £68

I have one darling tea dress in Redressing at the moment in a size 18. It's a high street take on the 40s shirtwaister so has all the flavour of an original but less authenticity than a reproduction dress. Still gorgeous!
Redressing £15
And of course there's always the gorgeous Floral Sweetheart dress from Tara Starlet which is available in lots of lovely different floral fabrics this season. The dearest by far at £85, but a stunning forties style frock nonetheless.

Something for every budget on this Fab Frock Friday! Have a great weekend!
