Vintage 1930s Seafoam Green Rayon Satin Bias Cut Evening Dress SZ S

Such a pretty dress , and so hard to find these 1930s bias cut gowns anymore. This one is a delicate shade of soft seafoam green in a rayon satin. It is bias cut, with 'V' seaming on the skirt panels front and back. The waist has an asymmetric partial sash, coming out of a bound slash on the right side and an extension of the bodice wrap on the left. This sash is short and makes either a knot with small ends or would work with a brooch. Diamante would be great. The skirt is very flared. There is no side opening, this is a slip on dress.

Label: none

Size: Bias cut, so extremely variable. This is without much stretch. Bust: 36", Waist: 28", Hips: 39", Shoulder to Waist: 16.5", to Hem: 55.5", Hem Sweep: 124".

Condition: Laundered. This has seen some wear, and like most vintage rayon stains, has surface scars. It also has scattered stains and spots, some are shown. The hem is uneven as the bias sections have hung out over the last 80 years. The straps are silk and are replacements. There is a darted hem mend as shown.

Vintage 1930s Black Velveteen Evening Gown by Louise Mulligan SZ XS

This lovely deep black cotton velveteen formal dress is a design by Louise Mulligan. It has a simple princess line cut, with a welted seam down the center front length. The straps have rhinestone buckles and hook to the square neckline bodice on both sides. The back neckline is cut quite low. The 8 panel dress has a very flared skirt. The back closes with velvet covered buttons and rouleau loops. Louise Norton Mulligan was a designer of junior women's dresses in the 1930s and 1940s. She had started by designing for Cartwright Company in her native Minneapolis. Later based in Chicago, Mulligan had her own label and produced her own line by 1937. After 1945, she was designer for Carlye Clothing. I did find a 1937 article that described a black velvet princess line dress by Louise Mulligan. I wonder if it was this one?

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

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.

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.

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.
