Description

This one of a kind home made dress that is an antique from the 1930's to early 1940's. It does not have a size, but the waist measures about 24" and the bust about 32". This dress has many moving parts. It is a wrap dress and hooks with 3 snaps on the left side of body forming a sash at the waist. It has some very unique detail on the back as shown in the pictures. What is not shown is the flowing wrap front has two tassels that hang luxuriously at the base of dress that tickle the shin. When you move in this dress, it ebbs and flows with your body and the tassels and delicate lace play with the eye. Material is most likely a silk blend, with a soft and fine feel on the finger tips. The mesh material flows from neck to waist and along sleeves to meet up again with silk wrist cuffs that snap together (one snap missing on right wrist).

Both pieces of silk bodice are lined like a lapel in a V-shape that meets at waist and snaps at waist line where it fits comfortably under silk sash. Top is lined with a second layer or inner lining of white silk for extra coverage and back portion of white silk is decorated in a black braided 1/4" thick ribbon that winds around the top. Also features gold and blue decorative stitching.

shoulders to base 44" , 21" sleeves

Good vintage condition:
White silk underlining has need of great repair
the black mesh has some minor snags on one sleeve
stain on back like a lightening but is covered my the fabric folding over itself when standing.
mild stitching to be cleaned up
needs a dry cleaning
