Vintage 1930s Maxi Dress / Black Lace
Vintage Clothing and Kimonos are not sized the same as modern manufactured clothing. Everything sold by ThisBlueBird will include actual garment measurements in inches. When choosing an item please refer to the measurements and compare them with a similar style garment you already own. Please note the measurements are actual garment measurements and you must leave 2 to 3 inches between your actual measurements and the garment for ease of movement.
The charts on this page are here to assist you in understanding how vintage clothing and kimonos are measured and where you should measure on your body.
Vintage 1930s dress in bias cut black lace. Keyhole back, short sleeves and 4 inches of crinoline at hem to provide shape. The shoulder have two layers of wiring for "invisible" shoulder pads! Red grosgrain bows at the cuffs. There is a 6 inch side opening with metal snaps. Fully sheer, so it will require a nice bias cut slip.
It is in very good condition, there are just a few minor breaks in the lace, they are at the neck, hip and under arm, see them in the last photo.
