Vintage 1930s Black Satin Dress Long Evening Style with Lapels Size S


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing



This is a wonderful black satin dress dating to the 1930s.  The dress is made in a long, sleeveless evening style, cut on the bias with a gathered bodice that has quilt stitched lapels.  It has a V shaped neckline, an inverted V shaped waistline and no closures - this dress has to simply fit over one’s head.  The dress is unlined.


Age: 1930s


Maker: no label


Fabric: Satin


Color: Black




There is no size label, and although this should fit a small size, please rely on the following measurements for fit, taking the style of the dress into consideration as well as that the dress has no closures and the 30” waist has to go pass over the head and upper body:


Shoulders: 13 1/2” across the top


Bust: 40” around, but should be somewhat roomy


Waist: 30” around


Hips: 36” around


Overall Length: 56”



Condition: In very good condition with no wear, tear, stains, marks or odors.  This dress looks to have seen very little use and was well stored over the years.


This is a sophisticated 30s era dress - simple and easy to wear with a great line!  With the right accents, this will be stunning.....
