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). Wide enough sleeves to be worn (even though they look thin). Might have originally had more satin ribbon under the lace... It's a tiny gown, so my mannequin is a bit too large for it, but it closes fine up the back.
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. This is a tiny size bodice, however, there are pleats in the bodice, so.... here was have a slim-fitted 1930's gorgeous color ruby silk velvet coat with long sleeves. even though it needs to be reshaped as you can see from the photos. Love the other details like the ruching on the skirt sides, upper skirt and wide cuffs, the puffy sleeves, and the pigeon shape bodice front.
Of all the things I sell, I think 1920s flapper headpieces are my favorite. Chigot" complete with the original silk lining and a small piece of the original price tag attached. Chigot was, but there are still a few of his signed pieces found when googling. Otherwise, this dress only needs some minor sewing. Nude under will look pretty much like this, but white under will "pop", red under will look like Rose's dress in Titanic, etc. Measures: about 32/33" bust, about 25/26" waist, 56" long from shoulder to hem, 66" long in back (train). I only found one tiny professional repair of black lace in skirt. I would probably wear with a rhinestone buckle belt... The only real issue at all with the dress is one small loss of velvet at the hemline (see photo)... You could hem it up but it's already fairly short, so... you will probably just want to snuggle with this velvet... This blouse if from the mid-1910's, usually worn with a simple skirt or suit. there are tiny age spots here and there and a few minor tiny holes (see photo) near shoulder and upper one sleeve. I have a few large closeup photos of the lace for you to tell me!
I still have a few rhinestone tiaras that are in my private collection, and I am close to adding this to my own collection as well, so think fast. He must have been the king of these fashionable cloches! One seam in the sleeve (I'd do it but I don't have a sewing machine), and one thread loop needs fixing on one sleeve (4 buttons on each sleeve). The black beading on this overdress gives the look of a 20s necklace hanging down the front... Black silk satin (good weight) gown with ivory net lace "underskirt" to about knee length, with a different embroidered black net lace over that to about ankle length. The interior isn't too bad, but at the upper portion of the interior lining is torn (see photos). I might consider adding Chantilly lace trim at the hemline, or satin or velvet ribbon which would lengthen the dress... Often these blouses are white cotton rather than as sheer as this crepe blouse. The skirt lining is cotton so it's perfect, and there are 4 layers of material at the hemline (see photos).
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.
Not perfect condition (due to a tiny breaks in the netting all over) but still in remarkable condition for any lace gown about 80 years old. Love the very low back and the lace drape "sleeves" over sleeveless gown. If you've never felt 1930s silk velvet, you are missing something that feels almost as soft as chinchilla. Measures: up to 42" bust, up to 42" waist, up to 45" hips, 47" long from shoulder to hem., but these are meant to be worn large, so will look great on smaller gals as well. Basically in very good condition with just tiny holes (see photos) which you won't really see unless wearing white under. High neck, long sleeves with rhinestone trim at cuffs and around "v" neckline. There is a tape inside the back of the skirt which gives the train the right shape.These were meant to be worn shorter so your ankles or Edwardian boots would be seen. I can hardly find a thing wrong with it except for one small hole in the long chiffon design element at front. I hate to sell items that aren't in near pristine condition, but every so often one has to allow these pieces to go to those who will love them... But the BEST of this piece is the gemstone silk pattered trim with thin metallic thread for a hint of shine! It was SO fabulous that I had the local Boston ABC-TV station and Boston Globe newspaper Sunday section to photograph my room! The dress follows the japonisme or orientalist fashion very much in vogue. One freckle spot at left hip (see photo), the tiniest ribbon fray at left neckline, a few hooks/eyes that will need replacing/sewing and really the only issue is water spotting on the back satin train (see photos). Measures: up to 34" bust, up to 25" waist (measures 26"), 57" long from shoulder to hem. even though there are two layers of the crepe to the skirt, it's still slightly sheer so you'll want to wear a slip under. on first look this dress is great, but then you look closer and there are issues... Measures: up to 33" bust, 26" underbust waist, 60" long from shoulder to hem in front, 66" long in back.'m ALWAYS on the hunt for Victorian sidesaddle habits! just two areas of small holes (one lost in folds, the other at the hemline - see photos) and a bit of lining tearing inside skirt hemline. Even the satin INTERIOR of the bodice is gorgeous!!The bodice lining looks to be perfect as does the full black attached slip for skirt! 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". However, I'm certainly not going to remove a lovely label like this! the blue silk side of this burnoose has water stains (see photos), so it's really best to wear as it was intended with the black exterior and the blue trim with burnished gold bullion rope trim.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. If you google that, there was a well-known artist and mapmaker in Maine with that name, so perhaps it came from her estate? The BOOTS will be sold SEPARATELY as they are quite special, would have been quite expensive when new and are certainly collectable. This is a SO SWEET full apron that would have been pinned on to a simple black or gray dress. There is a black tassel at the back as well per all classic burnooses. you gotta love the fact that this woman was of a "generous size" for someone from her generation! This blouse measures up to 45" bust, up to 32" waist, 15" long from shoulder to bottom.She wasn't old enough for it to be hers, but may have been collected by her? They came with the outfit, so you may want to purchase them with the habit. MEASUREMENTS: Bodice measures 32" bust, 12" across back, 24" waist. The lovely yellow printed silk is in quite good condition (with the exception of a hole at the front skirt and one on one sleeve, and minor underarm discoloration (see photos). I doubt she got much work done wearing this, and might just be for those special occasions. Lace trimmed with pink, light blue and green silk embroidered flowers at top, bottom and a spray of flowers at one side. I was lucky enough to get a few pieces of new old deadstock lingerie from the Great Granddaughter of A. As the label lists this as imported, one wonders if there is a Liberty of London connection, but we'll likely never know. Condition, beside the water stains on the inside, you will need a quick 2 minute machine stitching to reshape as you see. Sadly I couldn't seem to get great photos of this piece... RARE gold netting is the base with pastel pink and light blue flower embroidery, with additional gold lace and ecru embroidery lace. I know that Victorian mantles often found in black. And then sometimes you will be lucky to find a light tan or gray beaded mantle!Otherwise I'm pricing for the beauty of the gown itself. Just wear with a simple white blouse under, or dress up with a bright color under.... 1/2 length puffy sleeves with lovely cutout detail at the bottom of the sleeves and back. It's fairly lightweight, so not a winter coat, but rather an evening coat. The beauty (beside the velvet) is in the swing of the design at the lower back. Look at all the closeup photos to see all the pretty details... I'm not that great at knowing names to fabrics, but look closely at this fabric.. It's an ivory silk dress covered with black netting which is embroidered with Excellent condition with only issue being the netting on the sleeve draping (and perhaps a bit on the side draping) that you might trim for a crisp edge, and the black sequins at the back waist have browned threads so they will eventually need to be re-sewn, but still fine as is. Sadly there is some tearing of the chiffon on the top layer of the 3 layered chiffon/net sleeves (see photos)., and as always, there is tearing in the lining.
