Original 1930s Vintage Dark Blue With Hand Painted Silver Stripe And Dot Decoration Dress
This stunning 1930s dress has been in a navy fabric and has been hand painted with metallic silver stripes and spots. It also has puff sleeves, a replacement plastic zipper and a pleated skirt and four buttons to the bodice.
This dress is in good vintage condition with only a single barely noticeable stain to the back and a replacement plastic zipper.
It also appears to be missing one of its buttons but there are no prior stitch marks visible so this may have been an intentional design feature.
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.
