Incredible dark blue vintage late 1930s / early 1940s rayon slip with sheer over dress. Slip is trimmed in ivory embroidered orchids and has skinny folded net straps. Puffed sleeve sheer over dress buttons down front, with hook/eye at waist. Slip has waist darts (no bust darts) and closes with snaps and hook/eye at side.

After taking the photos, I realized the collar is intended to be folded over.

★Important sizing note: Due to shrinkage over time, the over dress is slightly smaller and shorter than the slip. The slip may need to be altered to fit properly. Please check measurements carefully, including sleeve opening (tiny!).

Best fit: XXS

DRESS
Bust: 33"
Waist: 24"
Hips: 32.5" (with front edges closed - design allows fit up to 34" hip)
Shoulders: 13"
Sleeve: 9.5"
Sleeve opening: 7"
Length: 42"

SLIP
Bust: 34"
Waist: 26"
Hips: 36"
Length: 45"

Condition: In addition to the aforementioned size difference of dress and slip, there are a few minor flaws to mention.
DRESS: 1" repair by hem (see last photo). Minor discoloration at underarms, seen only under bright light. Several pinhead to pinpoint sized holes overall (see last photo for most notable examples). Few faint rust colored spots to skirt.
SLIP: Minor discoloration and wear to net straps. Very minor discoloration at underarms. Couple faint spots to trim interior.

Dress and slip have been carefully cleaned.
