Absolutely stunning! This is a very late 1920s to early 1930s wedding dress with its original belt, bra, tap pants and slip included! Circa 1928 - 1932. Please read all the details for each piece below.
>> Dress << Made of bias cut ivory rayon satin with an Art Deco style, tucked and flared below the seat. Scoop neck and slim cut long sleeves with snapped cuffs. Includes a braided satin belt with center flower and petals. Dress slips on over the head and snaps up the right side which is somewhat unusual for a dress of this era. It is in excellent condition. There are a few small puckers to the satin. A few very faint marks down the sides of the sleeves and under one sleeve and at the hem. There is a single thread belt loop on the left side for the belt, no loop on the right side where the snaps are. See last photo. Dress has been dry cleaned and is ready to wear.
Dress Measurements were taken while laying flat and doubled where appropriate. There is a little stretch to the bias cut fabric. Measurements are not stretched. Dress is shown on a US size 4 Professional seamstress dress form and not pinned or clipped. For reference the dress form measurements are: 33.5"/25"/35"
Bust - 36 inches (91.44 cm) Waist - 30 inches (76.2 cm) Hips across the top points of the seams - 43 inches (109.22 cm) Length from shoulder to hem - 57 inches (144.78 cm) Sleeve length - 23 inches (58.42 cm) Shoulders across back, seam to seam - 14 inches (35.56 cm) Belt length - 30 inches (76.2 cm)
>> Slip << Made of bias cut ivory rayon satin with lace at the neck and hem. Small nonadjustable straps. The slip is in good condition but shows more wear than the other pieces. It looks like it originally had an intricate design of pin tuck seams which have been removed, the lines of the seams are visible. It also looks like someone has added gussets of satin along each side and hip to give extra room. There are a few small breaks in the lace and one tear in the slip about half way down the thigh area, it is about 1 inch long and these are easily fixed by a seamstress. There is a little faint smudge on the bust line, may come out with dry cleaning spot treatment. Of course, none of this would be visible with slip worn under the dress. See last photo.
