1930s Crepe Dress with Jacket
Just wonderful Thirties black textured crepe semi sheer dress. The crepe is patterned - visible when held up in the light. Bodice with 3 large genuine Mother-of-Pearl decorative buttons (concealing snap closures). Darling capped short sleeves with tiny shoulder pads add a little kick. 4 little pleats on each shoulder let into the bust. The dress has interior snaps for a dicky (original missing) - we've left them, in case one of you creative types wants to cleverly make your own (if not up to it, they are super easy to remove). Slight A-line to the skirt. Matching long edge to edge cardigan with glove length sleeves (also has little snaps to add cuffs). Beautifully tailored and chocked full of lovely details. Side metal zipper. Missing belt - we photographed with a 1930s woven belt. Weinberger label and a Fashion Originators Guild label. Bust 36", Waist 30", Shoulder to waist 17", Hips 40", Waist to hem 31 1/2".
