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
|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!
