1930's NAVY BLUE CREPE dress 30's S xs (D10)
Early 1930's (maybe even late 20s??) semi-sheer rayon dress. The piping design is backed in a peachy ivory to really make it 'pop'. Also, hidden under that piped design are snaps, they can open for easier on/off. Also has a side snap closure. My arms are too long for this, so I was not able to button the cuffs... they each have multiple buttons/loops. Picture 4 shows there is one button missing from the left cuff, but otherwise all the rest are there. The main issue I see with this, is the penny sized hole on the front center waist, seen in pictures 6 and 7. I don't know if originally there was some kind of belt detail there that was removed, creating this flaw? There are very wide belt loops on the sides, indicating this initially had a wide belt or sash that would have covered that area. There is fabric behind the hole, so you aren't seeing skin or your slip through it as-is. Repair or not, it's right at a place that would be covered if a wide or high belt or even a waist accent was used. Right above the hole us a slight touch of fade, it is actually less noticeable in person than in the pictures. There is a bit of thinning in the underarms, but does not show or detract when worn. Fits like a XS/S, even though this is cut loose in the body, it was not meant to be fully filled out... the 20's-into-30's cusp was still cut rather 'straight' through the body. Overall, even as-is, it looks so great for a 90-year-old! Model is a US 4, and is 5'7" tall. Please compare the measurements below with a dress you have at home that fits well.
