This wonderful dress was made in the late 1930s / early 1940s from rich red crepe. The high neckline emphasises the gathered shoulders and delicate golden beadwork rubs down each side of the torso into a drop waist. The side of the low waist has been adorned with two matching fabric flowers that feature the same golden beading and at the opposite site, a flattering pleat opens up to give movement to the skirt. The dress was handmade and fastens with poppers at the neck and the side of the bodice. Amazingly, it is accompanied by a fabulous matching halo hat with gorgeous star shaped beading and a pleated fabric flourish at the back. 

Bust: 36”

Waist: 30”

Hips: 40”

Length: 43 1/2”

Hat: perches loosely on the head and required pinning making it suitable for a variety of head sizes 

 

The dress and hat are in very good condition with only a couple of fraying darts and a tiny hole in the dress and a fraying seam on the hat 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 two different options:

 

1. Pure cream cotton for your heavier weight dresses, blazers and suits

or

2. White cotton muslin for lightweight summer dresses (so they don’t show through the fabric)

 

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.
