RESERVED ON LAYAWAY Exceptional Late 1930s, Early 40s Rayon Day Dress with Printed Soutache and Inset


  • Product Description

      Vintage 1930s dress is so fantastic - let me guarantee you, if this fit, you would never get a chance, it would mine forever. The perfect late 30s silhouette is both flirtatious and wicked, a femme fatale day dress with perfect lines. The front of each shoulder has a knife pleated inset. But of course, the eye catching element is in the boldly printed piping used as soutache, making a curling, corded detail from the neckline to hem. The skirt has a center front vent filled with a panel of the same material - it will flash as you walk. It's red and perfect green, royal blue, navy and yellow on white. A super flattering detail that draws the eye to the center of the body. This beauty closes with a side metal zipper. It has no tag, which I find quite shocking given the perfect execution of this design.

      This dress is clean and ready to wear. There is very, very minimal fade at the top of the shoulders. The underarm seams have old hand stitching. There is one tiny fray to rayon piping at the right chest. The back of the skirt has mild pressing sheen thoughout. The dress is sturdy and wears beautifully, I find no other issues to note!
