Isn't she lovely? Vintage 1940's going on 1950's sheer navy blue and cream embroidered sheer organza dress. Oh so lovely. Dolmen bodice, keyhole neckline opening or leave unhooked for a more relaxed look, sweet buttons embellishing bodice, nipped waist, wonderfully full embroidered skirt. Enjoy!
Measurements of Dress:
Bust: 33-34” (armpit to armpit: 17”)
Length: 44 1/4”
Shoulder to Waist: Approximately: 16 1/2”
Side Metal Zipper: 8 1/2”
Label: None remains.
Fabric: Sheer cotton organza, I belive.
Vintage Condition: Lovely “as is” vintage presentation. In excellent/very good condition, especially for a sheer organza of its age. There is age or storage discoloration around cream border, more so in some areas then other, along with some spots and specks, here and there. At back right shoulder, a little grouping tiny pin like holes, there are about 3, two a tiny bit bigger than pinholes and one a bit bigger than that, they don't pop out at you when looking at piece. A bit further to the right of that is a tiny white/cream speck. Some darkened watermark like discoloration at underarms, primarily the right one, doesn't stand out at all when wearing. I personally, don't find any of the above, jumps out and grabs the viewer when looking at this piece and would be happy to wear as is after an initial cleaning. Perhaps some of the above will lift or brighten along hem area after an initial dry clean. Either way, lovely and rare. 60 to 70 years old and STILL LOVELY!

TERMS OF SALE: PLEASE READ:
*Vintage clothing is worn/pre-loved and has sometimes been in storage for a number of years or around the block, a launder/cleaning before wearing is always recommended. I clean some items, but ultimate launder or dry clean, before wearing, is the buyer’s responsibility. Vintage clothing has often had a long and varied life that I am not privy to. (Ahhhh, the stories some of those dresses could tell…wouldn’t that be great if they came with a little recording in the pocket of where they’ve been and what they’ve seen.) I digress, that being said, vintage clothing should be cleaned before wearing, items are sold estate fresh/as is. *I will describe any flaws that I notice. All vintage clothing is bound to have a trivial flaw here or there. Most of the pieces I list are between 25 and 60 years old and will have normal wear indicative of their age. If you have any questions, please ask before bidding. We, being, me, myself and I, mention anything obvious that we notice and TRY our “BEST-US.” I may miss something super minor that does not effect the overall look of the piece in any way. *Colors may vary from computer monitor to computer monitor and digital cameras sometimes pick up colors differently depending on color and lighting, so if you have specific questions about color, please ask. *We, want YOU to enjoy the unique and lovely pieces, that we carefully hand select, and have a MARVELOUS TIME IN THEM. That’s our goal, plain and simple, nothing more complicated than that. Let’s Be Marvelous, Let’s Have Fun! Why not? Sounds like a plan to us…ME!
