Lovely and unusual vintage 1930s 30s dress.

✧ custom made -- one of a kind!
✧ black crepe
✧ unusual crossed bakelite x adornments with green paste rhinestones
✧ tight pintucks down the bodice
✧ sweet gathers + tabs for knotting at the waist
✧ lovely darts at the elbows for beauty + ease of movement
✧ fastens up the side with covered buttons

This little 1930s dress is so sweet and so unique! I adore the simple silhouette, the tie detail in the front, and the striking bakelite adornments on the bodice. Perfect for day with a simple pair of flats, or for night with a flashy pair of heels, this little treasure of a frock is one that will make you stand out wherever you choose to tread! It is in fully wearable, but also imperfect, condition, so please make sure to carefully read the condition notes below.

This beautiful dress was custom made over 70 years ago -- it is truly a treasure and one of a kind! There is not another one like it in all the world!!

This dress is in excellent structural condition with no stains, tears, holes, or visible mends, and is in overall fair vintage condition, with a good deal of fading and loss of appliques. As you can see from the photos, there is some very strong fading across the left shoulder (only extremely mild red tones on the right shoulder), and some more subtle fading to a shade of red in other places on the dress, particularly below where the now missing bakelite adornment used to be, and in some more spots on the skirt. Some rhinestone loss. Perspiration guards were placed inside of the underarms, and while they are not visible on the outside, you may wish to remove them for comfort’s sake. This dress has been priced with both its flaws and its virtues in mind. :)
