1930s Crepe & Velvet Dress


A dream of a 1930s dress with beautiful velvet accents! Chocolate rayon crepe with a little give and wiggle in the cut (fabric is a dark chocolate tone as is the velvet). Snaps and hooks at the waist to secure and velvet loop buttons at the back of the neck. Matching belt -which you will need to sew to fit as it seems longer than what the waist fit would be, this is easily done with a few hand-stitches (see close up). Overall the dress is quite a knock-out, it does have a few issues to mention. Small area of hand-stitching to reinforce the velvet/crepe seam near left upper arm, this is also not very noticeable when worn and could be tidied but functions just fine (see close up). One missing velvet button in the lower front (these are studded so can not be shifted easily) and missing button as already mentioned at the back of the neck. A couple of small pulls in the charmeuse fabric and small areas of reinforced stitches where the velvet meets the crepe. The dress presents very, very well and is a beauty when worn despite these small issues.
