This exquisite dress was made in the 1930s from black and cream silk in a stunning geometric graduating spot pattern. It was cut in the classic silhouette of the period with gathered puff shoulders and a defined waist yolk created by rotating the fabric pattern on its side. The elegant high neckline leads to seven buttons that fasten the dress at the back and stitched in pleats at the top of the bodice create a flattering effect. The waist can be cinched in with the attached tie belt at the back and the skirt is fully gored with the gores opening up into pleats at mid thigh to give wonderful movement to the dress. Inside, the dress is partially lined in taupe silk at the back of the shoulders. 

Bust: 38”

Waist: 31”

Hips: 39”

Length: 40” plus 1/2” hem

 

The dress is in very good condition with only a couple of minuscule exterior flaws and some shattering to the taupe silk lining near the shoulders (one picture shown but damage on both shoulders) but this lining could be removed.

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 pure white cotton.

 

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.
