Description

*vintage early to mid 1930's crepe dress labeled an R & K Original

*black with red trim around the neckline, along the shoulders and at the pockets

*round neckline, there are two snap fasteners that hold the neckline closed

*the neck has a large looped red bow like attachment, several pictures show it with an added brooch that is not included. The stitching that secures this is black so you may wish to add your own brooch to cover the stitching

*long sleeves that are full at the top then taper to fit tightly at the wrist, they fasten with two snaps

*triangular shoulder pads

*fitted waist with attached half belt to tie in front

*dress has hidden side button closure, there is a section of gathered ruching on each side at the high hip plus there is ruching in the entire back of the dress which is mostly hidden due to the attached belt

*there are pockets on each side that are trimmed in red

*the skirt skims the body nicely over the hips then flares out toward the bottom

*the skirt of the dress has another added piece of fabric about three-quarters of the way down that was sewn on in a scalloped pattern, it gives extra fullness at the bottom of the dress, very interesting designer touch

*the fabric is a textured crepe, I believe it is rayon

*label-R & K Original. This label began in New York in 1932, I believe that this dress was fashioned shortly after the company began

Some of the pictures were lightened to allow you to see the details.
================================================

*Condition*
The dress is in excellent previously owned condition. The only concerns to note are several small pulls to the fabric. They are not glaring in any way but I mention them for accuracy. The dress presents beautifully!

*Size*
Bust-36"
Waist-26 1/2"
Hips-40"
Bodice length-17 1/2"
Total length-49 3/4"

Vintage sizes are not the same as modern sizes so please use the measurements above to determine fit.
Measurements given are of the garment itself not the person who can wear it. Be sure to leave some extra room when you measure yourself for ease of movement, at least 1" of ease is recommended.
