RESERVED FOR CLEMENTINE - PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE - LAYAWAY 1 OF 2 due 18th May 2023


This beautiful dress was made in the 1920s from cotton with a textural stripe. The wonderful print features trailing foliage in three different shades of green on a white background. The dress was cut in the classic loose fitting silhouette of the flapper era with a drop waist. The V neckline has been trimmed with bias binding at the edge and this decoration was also used to adorn the asymmetrical placket. Four buttons at the neckline and four at the drop waist decorate the dress in an unusual configuration and a matching button adorns the small pocket on the wearer’s right hand side. Below the drop waist, the skirt opens up into inverted pleats which give the dress beautiful movement. 


Please note the dress has no openings.

Bust: 37”

Waist: 36”

Hips: 44”

Length: 38”

 

The dress is in good condition with only a few holes as pictured. It does however have several areas of discolouration, likely from storage. These have improved with soaking but would benefit from further cleaning.

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.
