Original Vintage 1930s 30s Cream Silky Rayon Dress With Pleating And Fagotting
This stunning dress was made from cream silky rayon in the 1930s. It is cut in an hourglass silhouette with lightly padded shoulders and a nipped waist. Three large pleats decorate each side of the bust and this lovely pleating is mirrored in the skirt, which has been box pleated from the hip to the hem. The hem has also been adorned with a single line of fogotting. The same fagotting detail was also used to decorate a small panel on each placket at the bust. The sleeves have wonderful volume and tight fitting French cuffs, which give a gorgeous bishop sleeve shape. A side metal zipper gives easy access to the dress.
Hips: 38” (possibly a little more due to pleats)
Shoulders: 14 1/2” seam to seam
Length: 43 1/2”
The dress is in very good condition with only a few minuscule marks as pictured and a slight run in the fabric at the underarm.
