Vintage 1930s Brown Velvet Afternoon Dress

This 1930s velvet dress is so soft and drapes the body so beautifully!  Lightweight silk velvet in a very dark brown.  The shearing over the shoulders creates full, draping sleeves and upper bodice.  An attached bow tie accents the neckline.  There is a classic 30s peaked waist.  The skirt hits about mid-calf, depending on your height.  Side snaps and buttons at the back of the neck.  

 

DETAILS

Label:  none

Best fits:  M (see measurements)

Circa:  Mid-1930s

Condition:  Overall very good.  The dress is in wonderful wearable condition.  There are just a few minor cosmetic issues to note.  There are a cluster of nicks to the velvet on the back on the sleeve (see last photo), but they are mostly hidden in the shoulder draping.  There are also a couple of pinholes in the skirt that are extremely difficult to see unless held in front of a light.  These certainly won't be noticed at all if a dark slip is worn.
