Late 1930's Blue Velvet Dress

From the seller:

Beautiful Vintage 1930s Blue Velvet Dress Small

Amazingly soft- what feels like silk velvet. Unlined. Fastens at the front with w zip to the waist and then hook and eye and popper closures down the front bust area. Beautiful gathering details.

Bust measures 36 inches, waist 28 inches. It has a matching belt and belt loops at the side.

Perfect condition. A few loose threads here and there that could be snipped off but nothing major at all. Amazing for its age

From Me:

1930's Advertistment
McCall 3169 | 1939 Evening Dress

This probably was absolutely fabulous looking in it's day although a bit threadbare now. The McCall's pattern has the same shoulder treatments as this extant gown.  Can you imagine doing those gathers on velvet?  Yikes!
