This stunning dress was made in the 1930's.

A home sewn piece it has been constructed using a mixture of hand and machine sewing. Shirring on the yoke and pleating at the waist give a lovely blouson bodice and the skirt is bias cut. Long sleeves, trimmed with a tiny band of velvet, it has a keyhole neckline in the front and fastens at the back with a hook and eye.

The print is a charming floral in rust, mustard, green, lime green and cream and it is a wonderful day dress in the perfect autumn colour palette.

Please note the dress doesn't have a belt or belt loops but I have belted it with green ribbon to show how it will look cinched in at the waist - ribbon is NOT included in the sale.

 

Measurements

There is no side opening. This is not meant to be a close fitting piece and is best suited to a 36-28-38 but to ensure it will fit you properly, please compare the measurements below to a similar piece you already own;

Flat bust 19" in the back and 21" in the fullness of the front

Flat waist 15" stretching to 16.5" as it is a bias cut piece

Flat hip 20" stretching to 22"

Shoulders between sleeves 12.5"

Underarm sleeve length 17"

Shoulder to waist 15.5"

Length 43.5"

 

Condition

Very good with some minor points to note;

- there is a 1" by 1/4" darn on the right front bodice, right near the waist, but this will be covered if you belt the dress

- a pinhead hole in the bodice when held up to the light

- the side skirt seams show stitches near the seam - it appears someone had taken the skirt in at some point 

- there are tiny stitch holes on the skirt and bodice - looks like someone lifted the skirt to shorten the bodice - only seen on very close inspection

- a mix of hand and machine stitching, not really a fault but a point to note
