LAYAWAY PAYMENT 2 OF 4 - RESERVED FOR SAIRA - Gorgeous Original 1930s Vintage Coral Cotton Belted Summer Dress With Pockets
RESERVED FOR SAIRA - PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE - LAYAWAY PAYMENT 2 OF 4 due 25th August 2023
This stunning summer dress was made from coral coloured cotton in the late 1930s. It was cut in the classic silhouette of the period with padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The collarless V neckline is unbelievably flattering and leads to a single row of three mother of pearl buttons that fasten the dress at the bust. A matching mother of pearl look buckle has been used to accentuate the original fabric belt that can be used to nip in the waist. Large patch pockets adorn the front of the hips and the skirt falls in a slightly flared line with beautiful movement. An original metal size zipper fastens the dress and it is unlined inside.
Waist: 28” (tight 30”)
Length: 44” plus 3” hem
The dress is in very good condition with only two small 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.
