Charming Vintage 1930s Floral Homemade Day Dress with Snow White Vibes


  • Product Description

      Vintage late 1930s dress is so cute, I can't guarantee you won't be immediately surrounded by cartoon animals. This puff sleeves piece was homemade of a silky celanese with a brushy floral print in softened primary colors. The sleeves are oversized puffed, gathered in two full tiers, with net inside to hold the shape. The bdocie has a gathered bustline, outlined with red velvet topped with little bows. The skirt is cut on the bias, come to a softly draped, not perfectly even hem. A previous owner, I would guess in the 90s, added a side snap closure on the right side. 


      Shoulders: 13.5"
      Bust: 38"
      Waist: 30"-32"
      Hips: 46"-60"
      Length: 42"

      Label: None Present
      Material: Celanese Acetate
      Condition: Good Minus, very wearable as is

      This dress is freshly dry cleaned and ready to wear. It is imperfect, but reasonable sturdy and entirely wearable. Someone has handwashed it in the past, which makes this fabric quite soft. The shoulder seams are hand stitched. There is a badly added side closure on the right, the addition of which left some little snags in the fabric. It has a single snap. Upon close inspection, I realized there's subtle color transfer throughout, mostly the yellow - this really doesn't detract, the satiny gloss and busy print hide it. there is a circular water stain at the center back. Finally, there is one pinhead hole at the back left side of the bodice, and one low in the back of the skirt. This wearable beauty is priced for less than half of what she would be in better condition, and she definitely wears more beautifully than she sounds in print.
