1930 Style Lace Evening Dress and Jacket in Emerald Green for the Mature Figure
LAST CALL! 50% OFF! Offered is a handsome 1930 style evening dress and matching jacket. In emerald green lace, it combines with chiffon and satin to achieve a flowing design for the mature figure. We will start with the jacket: It is unlined allowing the lace to show its lovely design. The front has no closure and is cardigan style. The sleeves are long and flared at the hem. The hem is scalloped. The sleeveless dress has a scoop neck with an illusion net yoke. The bodice is satin with a plunging lace overlay which forms the shoulder straps. The back is 2/3 lace with the satin beginning about 4" above the waist. Although the front is plunging, the back is a jewel neckline. The bodice lace continues to a V at the hip. The skirt alternates between bands of satin and lace at both front and back. The hem is handkerchief cut. The liner is in satin with a crepe hem band. There is a lace belt which is tacked in place at intervals. Details:Jacket: 25 3/4" sleeve; 27 1/2" shoulder to hem; 45" chest; 50 1/2" lower circumference. Dress: 15" across back; 16" shoulder to waist; 51" shoulder to hem; 21 3/4" armhole; 39 1/2" bust; 39" waist; 45" hip. PLEASE NOTE: we wish we could report that there are no issues, but we cannot. So. note the following: we find one pinhole at the exact center down from the plunge of the satin on the bodice (we wonder if there was a corsage or jabot at this place); more significant are a 7 1/2" tear on the right side chiffon hem which is jagged but could be repaired and a 2 1/2" tear on the chiffon at the back right side. There is a tiny break in the lace on the right shoulder at the neckline. Item 8546a
