1930s Dress Black Lace Evening Gown


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

Age: 1930s

Color: Black

Material: Lace, chiffon and silk

Sizing: No size is indicated, but this should fit a large size, although I think that it is supposed to fit loosely - please rely on the following measurements for fit, taken from the exterior (please take the style of the dress into consideration):

  • Shoulders: 16" across shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam
  • Bust: 46" around, taken under the arms
  • Waist: 43" around
  • Hips: 48" around
  • Overall length: 55"

Vintage dress dating to the '30s. Lace that has silk chiffon insetting. Neckline is formed in a V-shape with inset bib that squares the open neck area. Dress has cap sleeves and the bodice has applied panels placed so that the sleeves appear to be an extension of the bodice panels. Defined waistline. Chiffon insets on the skirt are placed such as to create bias cut effect. No openings other than at the neck, so dress is slipped over one's head. Separate black silk slip with male snaps placed at the top that match their female counterparts sewn onto the interior neckline of the dress.


  • very good
  • no visible breaks to the lace or other wear, tear or soiling
  • appears to have been very well cared for over the years
