This beautiful dress was made in the 1940's from dusky pink crepe.

A home sewn piece, using a mixture of both machine and hand sewing, it features a crossover bodice decorated with beading and soutache on the right front, and ruffles on the left neckline. With three-quarter length sleeves, which have neat cuffs, it has a skimming skirt and fastens on the left side with a metal zip.

I believe this was originally a full length dress as the hem has not been finished well and isn't in keeping with the rest of the dress but it still makes a great day dress and would fabulous belted.

 

Measurements

This piece will fit up to a 35-28-36

Flat bust 17" but due to the crossover it will fit a 35" bust, as is shown on the mannequin

Flat waist 14"

Flat hip 18"

Shoulders between sleeves 16”

Neck to waist 17"

Neck to hem 46.5"

Underarm sleeve length 10"

Flat cuff 5"

 

Condition

Good with some minor points to note;

  • a 1cm long darn running along the inner neck edge
  • a 1/2cm darn in the front skirt, 2" up from the hem
  • a 1/2cm farn on the front left shoulder
  • a 1" long and 1/3" wide darn on the back skirt, just up from the hem
  • a few small marks on the back hem, slightly noticeable on the outside but more seen on the inside
  • the zip has been a bit poorly fitted
  • the mix of hand and machine stitching on the piece means it is not as neatly finished as it could have been

Still a gorgeous piece and the issues really are minor.
