Bewitching early 1930s black lace gown featuring long sleeves with dramatic trumpet cuffs, beige mesh backing, flattering v-neckline, tiered skirt, scalloped lining and a stunning feathered brooch. The perfect gown for an entrance down the dark wood staircase into an elegant, candlelight parlor! Lined in bodice and skirt, unlined, sheer sleeves, pull-on, no closures.
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience) →shoulder to shoulder: 15 inches →bust: 38 inches →waist: 36 inches →hips: 40 inches →length: 50 inches →sleeve length: 12 inches + cuff
ESTIMATED SIZE: Small-Medium; meant to hang loosely with lots of room
CONDITION: Good vintage condition. The bodice and skirt of this gown are in nearly perfect condition save for one hole in the back of the skirt, which is SO rare for this delicate 1930s lace. The sleeves, however, have quite a number of issues around the underarm. It looks like someone poorly went through and tried to reattach them, but the "fixes" have caused bunching in the seams, and there's other unaddressed holes throughout. This gown is absolutely wearable with care, but I would recommend removing the sleeves. I wanted to leave this decision and how to do it to the next owner -- but my vote is to remove the current sleeves and make a lovely cap sleeve out of the cuffs! Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.
COLOR: Black with beige mesh lining
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents labels. Appears professionally made of a silk-nylon blend lace and mesh lining.
