This is a very pretty 1930s silk chiffon dress made in a lovely brownish pink tone.  This 1930s silk chiffon dress is sleeveless, has a flounced collared rounded neckline.  It has a three section skirt, each section delineated by an exterior seam.  There is a button at either side of the waistline and loops for a belt, but no belt is present.  There is a stitched rectangular section below the waistline to the right of the dress - I assume that this is a repair, but it looks original as there are seams with extra fabric, which is a little confusing to me.  Also, I don’t know why the buttons are present.  Perhaps there was an overpiece, like a bib that was supposed to be present, but I really don’t know.  The fabric is sheer, so this 1930s silk chiffon dress would require a slip - it is posed on my mannequin without a slip and none is provided.  There is no label.

Sizing: No size is indicated, and although this 1930s silk chiffon dress should fit a medium to maybe a large size, please note the following measurements for fit, taking into account the style of the garment and the fact that the dress must fit over the head as it has no other openings:

Shoulders:  16” approximate

Bust:  39”

Waist:  32” 

Hips:  48”, should fall loosely

Length:  56” measured flat

Condition: Except for the stitching / repair below the waistline, this 1930s silk chiffon dress is in very good condition with no wear, tear, stains or odour and the dress presents itself very well.  With the right slip, the stitching would not be as apparent

This is a very pretty 1930s silk chiffon dress……ethereal!
