Super Rare Original 1930s 30s Volup Vintage Burgundy Crepe Dress With Gorgeous Bishop Sleeves

This wonderful dress was made in the 1930s from burgundy crepe. It was cut in a flattering hourglass silhouette with a beautifully nipped waist. Contrasting panels adorned with a delicate floral print run down the length of each side of the dress, further emphasising the wearer’s shape. The small collar was made from the same fabric and the dress fastens at the back of the neck with sun fabric covered buttons. Stunning shirring brings the printed panels in at the waist and curved seam work shapes the hips. Shirring also decorates the top of the huge bishop sleeves, which add a real statement detail to this dress. The dress does not have any openings other than the back of the neck but there is circa 2” of stretch to the fabric throughout, making it easier to slide on over the head.

Bust: 42”

Waist: 32”

Hips: 44”

Length: 39 1/2”

 

The dress is in very good condition with only a couple of seam repairs and a very faint mark 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

or

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.
