This is a beautiful little dress.
Made in the 1920s or 1930s, it looks to be a home sewn piece which has been well executed but isn't made to the highest standard. A mixture of hand sewing and French seams have been used. It is quite a simple shape with no waist seam and no darts but looks wonderful belted. It features a tiny bit of gathering at the neck and has long sleeves with popper fastenings on the end.
Please note that the listing is for the dress only. The hat, belt and necklace are not included in the sale but are available in separate listings.
It is a loose fitting dress with no shaping at all so will fit a variety of sizes.
Flat bust 20.5"
Flat waist 18.5"
Flat hip 23"
Shoulders between sleeves 16.5"
Underarm sleeve length 14.5"
Very good with some minor points to note;
- there are a few small holes on the left bodice section - most likely from a brooch
- there are 5 pinhole dark marks on the bodice
