We can do it!  Blitz is a simple 40s style utility dress, perfect for jiving, digging for victory or make-do-and-mending in. She’s dedicated to the rationing cause, too – this little gem takes very little fabric!

Blitz is the perfect go-to day dress; with a pointed or rounded Peter Pan collar, short sleeve and empire waist leading to a straight skirt, it’s perfect for a range of figures, ages and styles. For a true 40s aesthetic, use plain or small print cottons, crepe and Rayon in navy, grey, rose pink and primary colours; or by shortening the hem to a mini-skirt length and using an Op Art, psychedelic or monochromatic print, you can make Blitz into 60s style scooter dress. An improvised pocket, novelty print or tartan are all great modernisers, too. And who can resist a contrasting collar?

And in case you thought Blitz was only suitable for daywear, think again! Use silk or velvet, and get creative with the collar using vintage or embroidered lace – or better still, remove it altogether and finish with a ribbon bow fastening – the possibilities are as endless as your fabric stash!
