Sweet Disorder Vintage

1930s Deco Velvet Midi Dress


The most sublime vintage 1930s velvet midi dress. Dagger collar and mutton sleeves adorned with gorgeous trapunto stitching. Little covered buttons down the fitted cuffs. Inverted V waistline and pleat in the center of the bodice create the flattering silhouette. The dress is bias cut from the waist seam down for classic 30s body skimming flare through the skirt. Matching velvet belt with original buckle. Keyhole opening with a little velvet button at the back of the neckline for ease. Dress slips on overhead with no side placket. The perfect combination of style and comfort~ the dress feels soft and fluid to wear but the structured sleeves serve powerful glam. Excellent condition. Fabric is rayon velvet so the pile is in remarkably good shape with only the most minimal signs of wear. Only note is that the velvet at the corners of the belt is worn through (see photo). This beauty presents flawlessly as you can see. A true Art Deco treasure.

Flat measurements~ Shoulders 14" Chest 19" Waist 17" can be belted smaller. Hip 22" Length 43" Length shoulder to waist 11" Armscye 9". Your shoulders and chest will need to fit through the waist measurement as there is no side opening. There's a little stretch on the bias. Best fit for sizes S-M despite the measurements. Shown on a US size 4 mannequin- 33" chest 26" waist 34" hip-and a perfect fit.
