The Revival Retro Team take as much consideration creating our garments as you do in purchasing them: They continue to manufacture locally in London, they chose GOTS certified organic cotton and they are particularly happy to have found a British company reviving the art of button making here in England and using alternatives to plastic like corozo nut.

A nipped in waistline and a beautifully full pleated skirt this dress epitomises classic feminine style. The long skirt resembles an A-line style but doesn't kick out too drastically, offering just the right balance of fullness. The length is designed to hit just below the knee, the most flattering length for many.
The Revival Retro boutique is well known and widely respected for its excellent range of clothing inspired by the past. You weren't born in the wrong era, you just haven't shopped at Revival yet!
They design for different body shapes and this style is brilliant for women with bigger hips and thighs but the bodice isn't roomy like some of our other styles. Women with bigger a bust could certainly try this but we would also direct you towards styles such as "Notting Hill" or "Brighton".
This dress is currently available in sizes 6-18 but they are working towards creating more plus sizes. We always appreciate input so let us know your thoughts.
Their summer range is created with minimising our impact on the environment in mind. Made in a beautifully soft but thick, breathable organic cotton that holds the pleats in the skirt so well! With GOTS certification we know that every part of the process of creating this cotton has been inspected.
They chose ECO FRIENDLY buttons for the bodice, Corozo Nut buttons are a wonderful alternative to plastic because they are ethical, durable, renewable, harvested naturally and biodegradable. They are pricier than plastic but we feel the extra cost is worth it for these reasons.
Discreetly stitched into the side seams of the skirt you will find two generous pockets. These have been designed to hold even the largest of phones! Thanks to the fullness of the skirt, no matter what you keep in your pockets, the line of the dress won't be ruined.
