Original 1930s 30s Vintage Pink Satin House Dress With Puff Shoulders And Sailboat Pattern
This beautiful full length house dress was made from a pink satin in the 1930s. The pink satin fabric is decorated with matt crepe images of sailboat on a shiny background. The straight neckline combined with a standard collar mark the beginning of a line of nine pink glass buttons which extend down to the knee. As you would expect from a dress of this era, the dress has wonderful gathered puff shoulders as well as stunning geometric panel work which gives structure to the pack of the garment. Whilst this dress would be perfect for lounging around the home, it would look equally stunning worn outdoors.
The dress is in very good condition, however there is some bobbling to both the inner arms and sides of the dress 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.
