To all our customers, we would like to make you aware that we do not wholesale or have any stockists of our clothing. We are the sole
sellers of British Retro dresses which are all produced in the UK. Therefore any products being sold by other sellers using our photography is not an authentic British Retro

The ‘Bonny Betsy’ Dress

The ‘Bonny Betsy’ dress is a highland salute to the 1950’s made from a luxurious brushed Tartan, which has a really warm feel to it. It has
a fitted bodice which seamlessly draws you in at the waist with a cute matching sash that can be looped into a bow at the back or front for a
more kitsch feel, or you can even add your own belt. There is also a cleverly concealed
zip at the back of the bodice.

This dress now comes with it's own matching headscarf!

 The beautifully gathered skirt is full circle with lashings of fabric to swish and swirl about in. To create a more full on fifties look just pop a
25” petticoat underneath, as shown in the photos, to really add extra volume and bravado to this dress
. Please note this sale is for the dress only.
But the matching Black petticoat (as shown in the photos) is available to purchase
separately in our Ebay shop.

We only produce small quantities of each designs, so you lovely girls can be reassured you won’t be
showing up wearing the same frock.

Please also be aware that exact colour of the garment may differ due to your computer monitor settings.

Sizing Info

All our dresses are UK size and have been carefully measured in inches to ensure the very best fit so we suggest before you make a
purchase, to take your own body measurements while wearing light-weight clothing or underwear and standing up straight.

About us

British Retro is an exciting new brand specializing in bringing you chic vintage styles from the good old days.
All our garments are proudly made in one of the oldest established London factories, assuring paramount quality and flying the flag
for home grown design and industry.

 These dresses are cute and curvaceous 1950’s Rockabilly style, in crisp 100% Cottons. They have a full circle skirt section, which looks
flamboyantly dazzling when worn with a 25” petticoat (please note that the petticoat is not included). These dresses can also be worn
without a petticoat for the more 1940's look.

 They are great for every occasion,whether it be Weddings, Parties, Proms, Hot dates or even  just to glam up to do the hoovering!

Thank you
