1930s Ochre chantilly lace sheer gown - Extra small
A divine 1930s dress in warm goldenrod shade floral lace, with bands of ruched taffeta to collar and skirt. Bodice is a loose fit but with shaped midriff, and drawn in at the waist with long ties to the back. Pretty rounded collar is finished with bootlace tie at the neck, with covered button detail to chest, and puffed sleeve. There are no fastenings/openings to body so bear this in mind with sizing, I have estimated size at an XS
Chest of garment 34"
Waist 30", designed to be drawn in with ties
Mid shoulder to bottom of waistband 15"
37" skirt length
(Slip body measurements as above, Hip 38")
Dress is in excellent condition, with a darker toned spot to front skirt which isn't very noticeable and minor darker marks at hem band as pictured. I am including a matching slip but this does show signs of wear; watermarking at underarm, odd mark to skirt, small pull hole at front neckline, and straps have pulled in places through handstitching alterations which have left the straps quite short although able to be reversed
