1920's Maternity Dress






From the seller:

I SEEM TO HAVE AQUIRED SEVERAL VINTAGE MATERNITY OUTFITS. THIS ONE IS GREEN SILK WHICH WAS ALTERED MOST LIKELY TO ACCOMODATE POST DELIVERY. THERE ARE BUTTON HOLES ON EITHER SIDE WHICH ARE FOR A TIE PROBABLY FOR LOOSENING. AND TIGHTENING GARMENT AS NECESSARY. THERE ARE ALSO A PAIR OF BLOOMERS. THE CLOCHE HAT IS NEW. MEASUREMENTS ARE SHOULDER TO SHOULDER 28" BUT THERE ARE NO SEAMS SO THATS AN ESTIMATE. WIDTH OF DRESS IS 54" "BLOOMERS WAIST IS 42" LENGTH OF DRESS IS 41" BLOOMERS OUTSIDE SEAM IS 26" INSIDE SEAME 14. DRESS ADAPTS WITH OPENINGS AS I MENTIONED SO IT CAN BE TIGHTENED OR LET OUT. PULLED IN THE WAIST IT CAN BE WORN AS A SUMMER BEACH OUTFIT. IT TIGHTENS TO ABOUT 26" AT THE WAIST. THERE ARE 2 BROWN STAINS ON THE PANTS BUTT. I HAVE NOT ATTEMPTED TO CLEAN THEM. MAY NEED DRY CLEANING.

From Me:

I.....ewwww.....

Sorry for anyone that actually reads what the seller wrote. Maybe I should include a warning?

There are times where I really wish I didn't have this format and could just say "Here are the measurements! It's pretty, it's green, it's a maternity dress from the 1920's! Yay!" and we wouldn't have to deal with the TMI details....
