Vintage 1950s Black and Copper Floral Party Dress SZ L

This 1950s party dress is a black and copper tones print in a crepe type weave. It's not rayon or silk; other than that it's a bit of a guess. I'd say some acetate is involved. The dress is too long waisted for my form, so please keep that in mind. It is studded with rhinestones throughout the front and the shirred waist has piped satin bands. The flared skirt is full, and the bodice is soft. The center back metal zipper does not extend all the way through the neckline. Quality wise, this is a home sewn dress.

The bodice has a wide , shaped inset waist band with a dart bodice cut with elbow length kimono sleeves. The skirt has released darts at the side fronts and is cut to taper in a bit with a back kick pleat. CB Metal zipper to close.

1950s Vintage Yellow Parisian Novelty Print Rayon Dress
SZ S

The fashion for novelty travel prints was one some of us wish we hadn't missed the first time around. This early 1950s rayon shirtwaist dress is in a cream, yellow, golden brown and aqua blue toned print of Paris complete with gendarmes, street scenes and Eiffel Tower. The bodice has dolman style short sleeves, a soft darted fit with fold over collar and button front with covered buttons. The skirt has a one button placket and a draped and lined peplum. The belt is modern and not included.

Label: Tailored Junior

Size: I would call this a Petite. Bust: 34", Waist: 27", Hips: 40", Shoulders: approx.15", Bicep: 11.75", CB Neck to Hem: 15", Waist to Hem: 21.5", Hem Sweep: 41".

Condition: I believe this skirt was shortened by raising the waist as the placket is rather short. In addition, the matching peplum was hand sewn on,(now it's set in the seam as it should be), which is not consistent with manufactured construction at the time. The aqua blue on the peplum is strong, while the blue on the rest of the dress is faded and has some dye runs. The dress must have been washed while the peplum was off at some point? It's a mystery. No holes, some darkening on the buttons.

Vintage 1930s Cream Silk and Lace Dress SZ S

This simple, unlined, mid 1930s dress appears to have been home sewn. It is a lightweight crepe de chine with lace yoke and sleeves. It has a loose fitting bodice, front skirt yoke and straight skirt with stitched down pleats that release at the knee level. The topstitching isn't the best, which is part of why I think it was home sewn.

Label: none

Size: Bust: 37", Waist: 28", Hips: 36", Shoulders: 16", CB Neck to Waist: 15", Waist to Hem: 29", Hem Sweep: 56".

Condition: has been handwashed. There are some pinkish areas on the back bodice. The neckline binding has flaws as shown. This dress was a slip over the head with no placket or closure and as such was too narrow in the waist to fit over the shoulders of even my SZ 2 dress form. We have had a small placket in matching silk added at the left side with a waist hook and 2 snaps. If you want an all original dress, this would be easy to remove and re-stitch the side seam. No holes.
