Comes with the original tie belt to tie with bow at back. Also, if you haven't seen 1930s silk velvet, you will be amazed at the sheen you will get from the light hitting it... Wear with or without the attached original sash belt (only held on by a few stitches). It's just so perfect, you have to wonder, but if so, it's perfectly done with the right fabric. Measures: up to 48" bust (so wrap as you wish), 46" long from shoulder to hem. It's as nearly perfect as any gown can be at 110 years old! The bodice yoke and mid-sleeves are completely lace.Great shape of skirt which flairs out with vertical lace at the thigh to the bottom. And the best news is it is in EXCELLENT condition and in a VERY WEARABLE SIZE! hen I first started collecting antique and vintage clothing, I started with white Edwardian gowns. Boat neckline, 1/2 sleeves, horizontal bands of open cutwork and embroidery, tiny lace at waist (though I would cover with colored sash - because I just love that look), fitted through upper leg and then gathered to lower skirt with the same cutwork, embroidery, lace and horizontal pleating. Measures: up to 34" bust, up to 24" waist, 54" long from shoulder to hem Great for a display piece in your room (yes, I used to just hang these pieces on a padded hanger, and then use a simple push pin in my walls to display! This piece has fairly thin cotton fabric, so you can wear as it's currently in Excellent condition, but wear with care. Also has a lovely long satin "sash" hanging at the side with black passementerie. It's the softest velvet I have ever felt (and I've touched a LOT of antique and vintage velvets! Measures: up to 35" bust, up to 34" waist, up to 37" hips, 52" long from shoulder to hem. You will need just a bit of sewing under the Chantilly lace (see photos)... The exterior 2 layers of Chantilly Lace is in great condition!! ;) At first glance, you will believe this to be a black velvet coat embroidered with gold lame, but at closer inspection, you will see that this is actually a 1920's gold painted velvet coat! The coat came without the black fox fur collar, but I'm selling it with the coat as it's crying out for that option to wear it either way!!!! There is no closure on the front, but you could certainly simply add a button and a loop at the waist and one at top. John Wanamaker's was one of the earliest department stores. Now I'm not a lace expert, but this lace looks like handmade Duchesse to my untrained eye.I will be looking over the piece in more detail in the next couple days to make sure it's as great as I think! It's a surprisingly large size with a 40" bust, 32" waist and 14" across back between armseams (usually that's 11-12" for antique gowns), 39" long skirt at front, 48" long skirt in back. HOWEVER, when you look more closely, you will discover that it's a fully embroidered paisley design. This one is a riding habit with the skirt that can be worn down as a skirt, or hiked up (as you see) with the silvertone skirt lifter (that came with it). There is one button missing as well (so I would move the top button down and wear a large pin (cameo) at the top buttonhole.... There is a handwritten tag inside that reads "Lepper Gardner".
Closed-off, lonely Edsel Bronfman wins a free weekend at a beach resort for a couple, and sets out to reinvent himself.
52" long on her, but will get a bit shorter if you are larger... NOTE: the rhinestone buckle is only pinned onto the belt because you're gonna want to size it to fit you.
Difficult to measure because bias will fit a wide variety of bodies. but I think it will fit up to 38*' bust, up to 32" waist, up to 40" hips.
Gown measures up to 34" bust (small cup size), up to 35" hips, 45" - 68" long from shoulders to hems, 70" long sash. First things first, the white ermine fur on this coat needs to be replaced. Measures: 33" bust, 24" waist, though will probably fit a 31" bust better as it's a small back. The only issue is that there is one small section at the side that was repaired (old repair) with a piece of material taken from the extra material turned over inside the waistline.
The condition is great with a few minor spots here and there (see photos) and just a bit of wear at the mid sash (see photos). It's very dry and no longer viable, but I'm leaving it on the coat so your furrier can use as a pattern. Again, I used to buy lovely bodices like this and hung them on a padded hanger and then used a simple push pin and hung them all over my walls in my bedroom!!! So the dress used to be longer, and likely had a bit of a train. I get a lot of people asking for gowns that perhaps aren't in perfect condition as it keeps the price affordable...
