C. 1940 Navy Blue Crepe Lace New York Creations Dress with Eyelet Lace
Vintage 1939/1940s day dress from New York Creations is absolutely darling. It embodies that so-specific silhouette, with lightly padded puffed sleeve shoulders and a swishy skirt, shaped with four flared gores. The feature of the piece is the eyelet lace. This is backed in a colorblock inset of ecru. The effect it has is flattering, accenting the width of the shoulders and nipping the waist. The shirred peplum is made of the same cotton organza eyelet lace. The dress closes on the side with a sturdy metal zipper.
Label: New York Creations
Material: Rayon crepe, Cotton Organza Eyelet Lace
Condition: Good minus, very wearable as is, has repairs
This dress has been dry cleaned and it is for the most party sturdy. The only real issue with the piece is that the lace did not come clean at the cleaners, and I cannot deconstruct the dress to remove and wash it. It is yellowed and has scattered spots, mostly at the shoulders/neckline. There's small areas near the edge neckline/shoulders that have frayed, and I reinforced those with sheer interfacing to prevent further damage.
This is a consignment item, so the price cannot be further adjusted.
