An early 30s black lace and silk chiffon party dress in a very art deco styling. It is made of rayon chiffon (stiffer to the touch than silk chiffon is) the lace is a cotton lace.
It has its original belt with the pressed metal and diamante buckle. Also has a lace rosette at the neckline. It is lined in a black rayon slip, which is not hemmed but this appears to be original to the garment.
There is one small hole in the right lace gore of the skirt, dime sized and one other very small one in this same gore, there is also a small hole in the lace under the left arm and one other small hole at the right wrist. There is also some soiling on the nude chiffon underlay at the back and under the arm, this does not show when the dress is worn. Other than this, this dress is in very good condition for its age and still has wear left to it.
Please rely on the following measurements for fit and you should be smaller than the measurements as these dresses simply go over the head, there is no opening except for the neckline and they are meant to skim over the figure and not fit tightly.
Shoulders: 14 1/2"
Top of Sleeve: 13" around (measurement taken from base of underarm to across the top of arm)
Wrist: 7" around
Overall Length: 50"
This is a very elegant dress which is sure to help you make a grand entrance when you enter the room!
