Original 1950s 50s Sand Beige Beaded Vintage Wool Dress Mountain Home
This stunning beige dress was made in the 1950s from fine grade wool. It has an elegant copper and metallic blue beaded decoration around the rounded neckline and highlighting the fabric covered buttons from the neckline to the waist. The dress also has a wide belt shaped waist panel and pleats to the skirt.
Length: 42” plus 3” hem
This dress is in very good condition throughout. However the original zip has been replaced with a more modern plastic one and there is overlocking to some of the internal seams.
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.
