Vintage 1930s Black and Orange Dress with Metallic Soutache

Raleigh Vintage

The detailed trim on this late 30s dress is super chic!  Lightweight black rayon crepe with orange-rust trim.  The trim is accented with scrolling gold metallic soutache.  The v-neck has a modesty bow (to secure the v higher up), but this can be removed if you prefer a lower neckline.  Peaked seam waist.  A-line skirt.  Back button, keyhole neck.  Side metal zipper.  Unlined.   

    Label:  none
    Fabric:  Rayon crepe  
    Circa:  Late 1930s / very early 1940s

    BEST FITS:  M (see measurements)

    CONDITION:  Overall very good.  The dress shows light, normal wear, with just a few issues to note.  There is a very subtle coloration in the orange fabric.  There are a couple of darned holes on the upper back of the skirt.  Some of the skirt seams have apparently been taken in and let out a few times.  See photos.  Priced Accordingly; sold AS IS.
