ON LAYAWAY 

Late 1930’s evening dress with ‘floating’ side panels, over a relatively straight full length skirt relieved with cb kick pleat. Both skirt and panels are mounted on a light buckram to give additional structure and shape.
Fine silk lining and unusual Art Deco embossed cloqué sateen fabric, possibly cotton. The print is done in metallic shades of reddish copper, gold, and silver, on a forest green ground.  (I have cautiously steamed the dress, obviously it's meant to have a design 'pressed' into it as you can see, and am scared to over-do it and lose texture.)

The bodice is typical of the period, with a lightly defined sweetheart neckline and deep v to rear. Fastens below this v with a series of small press studs, and hooks and eyes.  Tie belt in self fabric to natural waist, fastening to rear which completes the back interest. 

 

Measures: 

Bust 38” inc darts  
Waist 28” (tie to fit smaller)
Hips 38” 
Length 58”

Condition: 

Generally good, clean and immediately wearable.

- Small repair to back fastening using original fabric.

- Front bodice right hand side I found two small repairs to slits in the fabric, near the darts, has been overseen onto buckram for stability?  - fabric integrity seems good overall so think accidental damage rather than deterioration. Luckily it’s a textured printed fabric so not so obvious. 


- Some slight colour variation between side panels and lower hemline when held together (see photo) but does not appear to be faded and certainly does not detract.

- Very faint watermark to inner underarm lining, but generally the lining is undamaged and unmarked.
