 1920s Vintage Black Velvet & Moir้ Evening Dress Coat SZ S

Order #O450
1920s Vintage Black Velvet & Moir้ Evening Dress Coat SZ S

This lovely evening dress coat is lightweight in black velvet with a silk lining. The front panels, neck ties, cuffs and circular flounce are all in a rayon moir้. The sleeves are quite long with the added ribbon cuff, but wasn’t meant to be turned back as it is not lined and the seam would show. There are the typical 1920s back neck darts as shown. The construction on this is good, but most likely home or dressmaker made.

Vintage Late 1930s Black Crepe Evening Dress with Gold Sequins SZ M

This very late 1930s to early 1940s dress is a beauty in black crepe with a sweetheart neckline, fitted body and dropped waist seam. The skirt is gored with a tulip flare at the hem. But what you are looking at is the cascade of gold sequined and glass beaded appliqu้s down the shirred bust to about knee length. Very effective. This is a nightclub performance dress if ever I saw one. These are fabric appliqu้s with sequins and beads, and the fabric matches the dress crepe. These are all hand sewn onto the gown. The side closes with a metal zipper.
