Vintage 1930s Black Lace and Crepe Evening Dress

Raleigh Vintage

This late 30s dress is the epitome of elegance.  A simple silhouette with a tank bodice and a straight, floor length skirt.  The bodice has a blouson, sheer chiffon and lace overlay that ties at the back of the neck.  Iconic peaked waist.  Side snaps.


    Label:  none
    Fabric:  Rayon crepe; lace; chiffon
    Circa:   Late 1930s / early 1940s

    BEST FITS:  S/M (see measurements)

    CONDITION:  Overall very good - excellent.  The dress shows normal wear.  The only issue to note is a small grouping of small holes on the bottom-back of the skirt.  These are very difficult to detect unless you're inspecting the bottom of the dress closely and they almost disappear if a black slip is worn.  Missing original belt.  Priced accordingly.
