LAYAWAY PAYMENT 1 Of 2 - RESERVED FOR SHANI - Gorgeous Original 1930s 30s Volup Vintage Burgundy Red Dress In Satin And Crepe
RESERVED ON LAYAWAY FOR SHANI - PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE - LAYAWAY PAYMENT 1 OF 2 due 14th March 2022
This stunning dress was made in the 1930s from alternating panels of deep red satin and crepe. The main body of the dress consists of a luxurious, shimmering satin whilst the neckline is framed in matching crepe, which runs in a wide column down the centre of the dress creating a flattering slimming effect. This column is mirrored at the back of the dress and matching crepe was also used to bind the cuffs of the three quarter length sleeves. Two decorative buttons adorn the neckline and add a further detail to the piece. The dress fastens with poppers at the side and is unlined inside with small shoulder pads and the practical little poppers to hold bra straps in place.
Shoulders: 15” seam to seam
The dress is in very good condition with only a couple if barely noticeable pinholes, frays and marks 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
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.
