On her blog MM states that each dress is, “each inspired by the film actresses I admire”. What a lovely approach to art of reproduction tailoring. In terms of the line’s name she goes to say, “I share my birthday with Betty Grable and the name of my frock shop comes from the war time slang for a good looking woman, an Able Grable. So the first frock is a tribute to Betty Grable.”
The first piece in this gorgeous new line is a red polka dot, satin dress with white trim and collar that instantaneously calls to mind silver screen elegance and the sort of styles ladies of the time might have donned for those days when they needed something extra special to wear.
Available in sizes small through 3X, this sweet frock is limited to a twelve dress run. If you’re interested in picking one up for yourself, email Matilda at email@example.com for further information and pricing.
I think this dress is wonderfully pretty and can’t wait to see what other excellent designs Able Grable has in store for all of us vintage frock loving ladies!
