1930s Vintage Black Chantilly Lace Evening Tunic Over Blouse Size S

1930s Vintage Black Chantilly Lace Evening Tunic Over Blouse Size S

This charming 1930s lace over blouse or tunic would have been intended to be worn over a matching slip or coordinating evening dress for dinner. In the 1930s and 40s, dinner dresses were not as bare in the shoulder and arms as evening or ball gowns. The style was for a dress that looked good while seated at a dining table, which meant more attention and detail in the bodice than a dress with narrow straps could accomplish. Sometimes these dressy tunics were easily removable for a dance after dinner. This one wouldn’t have been. It’s a black Chantilly type lace with long sleeves and a dee flared peplum. The stand neckline closes with a self-tie and a row of functional metal buttons with tiny rhinestones and loops, while the skirt has a row of some buttons at the center front. The closure is on the side with snaps and a hook. There are wide crochet belt loops – a velvet or satin sash would look wonderful.

Label: None

Size: Bust: 35”, Waist: 26”, Hips: 38”, Shoulders:14”, Sleeves: 20.5”, CB Neck to Waist: 15.5”, Waist to Hem Front: 18”, Hem Sweep: 52”.

Condition: Lovely. All buttons present, lace in good condition, no stains or holes.
