1930s Beaded Velvet Dress


A wonderful velvet dress from the early 1930s, the blush silk detail with beading at the bodice carries a rather Egyptian vibe, beautifully done! bodice is a wrap style, snaps at the waist (recent replacements) to secure. Loop buttons at the cuffs and lovely threaded ties through two holes here also, great feature. The dress is in good shape overall with some slight fragility as might be expected from 90 year old velvet. The tape area for snaps on the waist is missing a section and a tiny area of worn velvet near the collar. Best for a petite/XS fit to conserve the fabric and seams (even though it measures a standard small, sleeves on narrow side). Please note I had a few seams reinforced so up close you may be able to see tiny stitch marks from previous work.
