1930s Floral Chiffon Dress. This is a very fine example of a 1930s vintage chiffon dress.
The dress is two shades of rose with some charcoal black and off white . In the photos the white slip ( not included) I have beneath the dress makes the coloring appear very faint whereas the back shows the color better at the shoulders . The colors are soft and very pretty.
The dress slips over the head , the V neckline is lined with an ecru color handmade lace and has a long tail bow tie at end. The sleeves are long , straight and narrow with snaps at wrists. The drop waist has 4 rows of the finest pintuck pleats seams , beneath this is another panel that has the handkerchief hemline attached to it .
On the front center just below the pintuck pleats the fabric hangs a bit longer . I have carefully examined this to determine if there was a pleat there also that had come undone but found no stitch holes or indication that it had. My conclusion is it was made this way. The handkerchief hemline is a long panel and overlaps on front left ( see pics).
The condition is very nice , I see no holes or stains even under arms .
The dress was measured across and doubled , hanging: 15.5″ across shoulders inside seams/ 42″ bust/ 39″ dropped waist 23″ down from shoulders/ 40″ hips/ 13″ around upper arm/ 8″ around wrist / 23″ sleeve length/ 44″ length.
Thank you for looking at my listing . I am always happy to answer questions and inquiries.
