From the 1930s, a jet black lace gown with attached faux bolero bodice, puffed sleeves, and flowing skirt. Matching slip with net lace at bodice and scalloped hem. Both pieces close at side with snaps (plus one hook&eye on dress). Some photos lightened to show detail.
Fiber/Care: dress is natural fiber (probably a blend). Not sure what the slip is. Burn test was inconclusive. If you're vegan, can't promise there's no silk in it. hand wash, dry flat
Condition: Dress is delicate, but wearable. Many holes have been repaired, especially at waist. Many remain, but mostly don't show due to slip. Much is intact/perfect or nearly so. Yards of intact fabric could later be repurposed, but you should get at least a few fabulous evenings of wear from the dress if you're gentle. The slip is in good condition with only one pinhole noted. It can pair with another dress or go solo down the road.
*Dress and slip are freshly laundered.*
(will stretch more, but at increased risk of tears)
hips at the seam: 38-41"/96.5-104cm
length: about 60"/152.5cm
Note that dress/slip are not clipped to Delphine, who measures 32/24/35.25. Looks good on her, but could work on larger figure equally well.
