This incredible evening dress was made in the late 1930s from rose pink crepe. It was fashioned in the classic silhouette of the period with padded peaked shoulders and an elegant slim line. The form fitting bodice leads to a gently nipped waist before skimming the hips and falling into a flowing skirt with a large inverted pleat at the centre front. Stunning pleated detailing at the left shoulder and right waist adds a wonderful textural design detail to the dress. The gown fastens with five fabric covered buttons at the back of the bodice that run to the hip seam and has a maker’s label for Rosalinde Gilbert inside. 

 

Bust: 32”

Waist: 27”

Hips: 33” (tight 34”)

Shoulders: 13 1/2” seam to seam

Length: 59 1/2”

 

The dress is in very good condition with only some very minor flaws as pictured.

This garment is available to purchase with or without dress shields. These clever little contraptions have been made by our seamstress to an original 1940s pattern and can be simply attached to your garment by tack stitching at the corners of the underarm seam, pinning (we wouldn’t recommend that, it hurts if it goes wrong, so if you try this, it is at your own risk only) or inserting tiny poppers. They then stand ready to absorb any sweat and body odours as needed and you can simply detach and launder them instead of your garment, saving you a fortune in dry cleaning bills.

 

They are equally suitable for suits, blazers and dresses and come in pure white cotton.

 

They are universally sized and super easy to use even for a sewing novice as only a couple of tiny stitches are required at each side to secure them.

 

We sell Dress Shields as a standalone item or at a discount if you purchase them with a garment. We will select the appropriate type to match the garment you have purchased.
