Vintage 1930s Mint Green Organdy Party Dress and Capelet

This very sweet 1930s party dress is made from sheer organdy (slightly stiff by nature) in the most lovely shade of pale mint green.  The dress is sleeveless with a peeked banded waist and a bias cut skirt that ends in a wide, full ruffle.  There is a matching bias cut silk slip.  The capelet has floral accents on the front and ties at the neck with a dark brown velvet ribbon.  There is a matching belt of the same dark brown ribbon.  Keep in mind this lovely dress must be slipped on over the head with no side or back openings.

 

DETAILS

Label:  none (probably homemade)

Best fits: M/L (see measurements; keep in mind the dress slips on over the head)

Circa: 1930s

Condition:  Overall excellent.  The dress is in amazing, wearable condition (especially considering its age).  The dress appears to be homemade, so there are slight minor imperfections in the construction (ex. the hem is uneven), but nothing major or truly distracting.  The velvet belt shows slight wear on the ends.  The slip is in overall very good - excellent condition.  There is one teensy pinhole that doesn't show through the overdress and some of the interior seams are fraying, but these aren't seen unless the dress is turned inside-out.
