Sweet dress from the late 30's to early 40's in midnight black velvet. Dress features gold trimmed flaps down the bodice, tea-tone floral lace around the collar and edges of the little puff sleeves and brass ball buttons down the front that secure with loop closures. Missing it's original belt but we had a black velvet belt with gold trim that matches so well, we just had to include it! (belt is a much larger size and you'll need to add another hook and eye or trim it to size it down). Dress is unlined.

Marked a vintage size 12 which is much smaller than a contemporary 12 so please go by these measurements.
Bust - 34"
Waist - 26"
Hips - 38"
Shoulder Span -
Shoulder to Waist - 16"
Waist to Hem - 26.5"

Overall, the dress is in very good condition and is gently wearable with a couple of minor repairs. There is a 1" tear under one arm that once repaired, will be unnoticeable. One button is missing from the very bottom, which is not noticeable especially if you're wearing it with the belt. One teeny separation to the fabric at that same spot. When we held the dress up to the light, we noticed that there are several very small spots on the front where the nap of the velvet has worn away but the backing remains. It does not appear that they are holes just spots of wear that would not be noticed with a slip beneath. Velvet has light wear, typical of vintage velvet. One belt loop is unattached at the bottom. We recommend removing the belt loops. Brass buttons have some verdigris. The metal zipper works but is rough, particularly at the base. You might want to replace the zipper.
