Original 1930s 30s Vintage Black Crepe Dress With Embroidered Pink And Baby Blue Soutache Decoration And Huge Bishop Sleeves
This wonderful dress was made in the 1930s from a light weight black crepe. The dress is cut in a free flowing style with a v-neckline. The neckline is finished with a large black crepe bow backed with a beautiful contrasting light blue satin. The stunning 3/4 length bishop sleeves have elasticated cuffs to emphasise the volume. These beautiful sleeves are decorated with two parallel lines of pale blue soutache embroidery. There are similar patterned embroidery from the shoulder to the armpit to both the back and front of the dress. A line of fourteen small circular black buttons and loops on the wearer’s left hand side closes the opening panel on the bodice while press studs help to fasten the concealed bodice underpanel.
Length: 43 1/2” (waist to hem 28”) plus 1” hem
The dress is in good condition, however it has a number of small holes and mends and a small seam pop as pictured. The hem has dropped and needs tacking back up.
