1930s Beaded Velvet Dress


Stunning velvet dress from the 1930s, the sleeve construction is just gorgeous! Silk chiffon collar with beading and open back which hooks at the back of the neck, side snaps to secure, the velvet itself feels like silk velvet, it is extremely light and soft but is likely a blend. (Please note that the dress was loosely stitched at the back and I opened it up as it was originally intended to be worn). Matching waist tie, no maker label. Overall great condition, a few discreet hand stitches securing skirt & back of waist seams, the beading is largely intact with just a small handful of missing areas, not terribly noticeable overall however. A very beautiful shade of blue and a just a fabulous addition to a vintage wardrobe! Mannequin is an xs fit and the dress is not pinned, in my opinion it is a good idea to leave a little room in the measurements on these 30s silk velvets.
