Late 1920's black crepe dress. I think it's cold rayon. Fairly straight-cut, has pleated insets front and back at knee level that open fuller when you walk. Scalloped collar, and the scalloped edge extends as a seam accent for 7.5" below the waist. The top-layer sleeve edges are also scalloped. There is a plaid 'dickie' sewn into the neckline, with snaps at one side so it can be opened to more easily put on. The dickie matches the covered buttons up by the shoulders, as well as the layered-look sleeve cuffs. The plaid part in the sleeves is actually just stitched to the inside of the black sleeve cuff. I found the wrists to be VERY difficult to get on, even unbuttoned, they are SO tight. I have average-sized hands, but I might as well have been wearing boxing gloves. :) Once on, though, I was able to easily button the wrists. I would guess that most modern women might need to alter the cuffs to make this more easily wearable. That is the only 'tight' spot, the rest of this dress is loose and flowy. Pulls on over the head, no side closures. FLAWS: The top back is faded to green. I don't know if it can just be dyed back to black, or if that's easier said than done? Please convo me for close-ups of the top back fading. One cuff button is missing, and the others are pretty threadbare (picture 5). May be a non-issue if you need to modify the cuffs anyway. Picture 4 shows the front right inverted pleat (knee level). It must have at some point torn vertically, and was repaired. There is also a back right one that was repaired, but not as noticeably. Honestly, though, I doubt anyone else would notice this when you're wearing it, it's very dark black, so the repair is blended in to the dark fabric. It's noticeable in picture 4 because I intentionally lightened the picture to make it show up for you to see. Please compare the measurements below with a dress you have at home to see how this will work for you. This is meant to be worn a little loose. I am a US size 4, and this did feel big on me, but I do not have it 'pulled back' at all in the pictures. I estimate this is maybe more like a 6/small 8?? ACTUAL GARMENT MEASUREMENTS Shoulders: 13.25" seam to seam across top back Sleeves: 19.5" to scalloped edge, 23" long total Bust: 38" Waist: 33.25" Hip: 41" Length: 46" Check out my other listings, I love to combine shipping!
