Delightful vintage 1930s long dress with set-in decorative raised trimSo rare to find such a lovely wearable dress from the 1930s in such great condition. Beautifully hand-made in pink medium-weight rayon satin which gives it such a lovely drape.
The bodice is gathered at the shoulder yoke and V-shaped band at waist. The gorgeous puff sleeves have the same stand-up corded trim as the skirt. The sleeves are lined in cotton tulle to give them the great shape.
The long skirt is A-shaped sitting flat over waist and top of hips.
The dress has 2 ties that tie at back to pull waist in and it closes at the side with large press studs.
Size: Medium (approx AU 10-12)
Please check measurements to be sure as waist measurements were very small and the girls shorter in the 1950s. Measurements are taken flat on dress so remember to allow room to move. I recommend checking measurements against a dress you know fits.

Dazzling 1920s chiffon flapper dress with heavy tambour beading and rhinestonesAmazing example of 1920s style. Originally purchased from an estate sale in USA.
Stunning 1920s black chiffon flapper dress beautifully beaded in tambour style.
Between the beading on the hip section it is decorated with sparkling rhinestones.
Has long sleeves which is unusual for this era. These could easily be removed if desired. The hem of the skirt is scalloped and covered in beading.

In excellent condition for it's age. Only issue is some loose beading and some small sections of beading are missing. This doesn't detract from the dress at all. It still could be worn but with extra care.

Elegant 1930s era long black lace dress with black petticoatThis gorgeous long gown was well made during the 1930s. Not sure of the composition of the black lace but it has the look and feel of cotton.

The puff sleeves are lined with black fine tulle to keep the shape. The neckline and armhole seams are finished with satin rolled binding.
There is a wonderful hand-made satin and lace floral motif that is attached down the left side from the hips to just above hem. The satin is black not purplish as showing in photos. Closes at the side with 5 metal press studs.
Comes with a straight black silky petticoat.

Please check sizes to be sure and remember to leave room for movement as they are measured flat on garment . I highly recommend comparing measurements to a dress you own that fits.
