RESERVED FOR GILDA - PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE - LAYAWAY PAYMENT 1 OF 3 due 7th July 2023


This exquisite piece was made in the 1910s from soft deep navy blue wool. The garment cleverly consists of a long sleeve underdress and a shorter tunic over the top. Both pieces are loose cut as you would expect from the late Edwardian era and feature exceptionally beautiful beading including stunning ball tassels. An attached shawl detail adds a further beautiful design detail to the dress and both pieces slide on over the head with the tunic fastening at the shoulder with poppers. 

As the tunic fits more loosely than the underdress, we have shown below the measurements of the underdress. This would still be intended to be loose fitting so please allow for this in the sizing.


Bust: 38”

Waist: 33”

Hips: 38”

Length: 42” plus 2 1/2” hem

 

The dress and tunic are in very good condition with only a few 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.
