1930's 1940's LITTLE BLACK DRESS with cute yoke S (E5)
Cute lil' 1930's/1940's era dress! Black rayon crepe, with a nylon mesh ruffle trimmed yoke. The yoke is edged in ivory. Side button closure (picture 9), no zippers. Sheer lace cap sleeves. Light shoulder pads in the dress, they are not original, they are later replacements. This has had a small extender sewn to the bottom edge, to make this about an inch longer (picture 8). Overall, this is in excellent condition for a dress this age! When I held it up to bright light I could find a couple of pinholes, but the only way to find them is to have light shine through it, so they don't show in normal wearing. Also, if you flatten the ruffle and really look, there are some small holes in the mesh of the ruffle, but again, no one will notice. Presents very well! please compare the measurements below with a dress you have that fits well. ACTUAL GARMENT MEASUREMENTS (no stretch) Shoulders: 14.75" seam to seam, but the shoulder gather allows for up to about 16" Sleeves: 7.25" Bust: 34" Waist: 28" Hip: 38" Length: 39.75" (14.5" shoulder to waist seam, about 25.25" waist to hem) Check out my other listings, I love to combine shipping!
