Bias cut peach lace 1930s evening dress bolero jacket set XS




This sheer peach lace 1930s evening dress has a slinky bias-cut silhouette, with short puffed sleeves and rows of satin ribbon trim on the cropped, bolero jacket. The sleeveless dress bodice has a V-neckline in front and a lower cut V in back, with diagonal seaming and tiny gathers under the bust. It fastens on the left side with 4 metal snaps. The lower half of the dress flares slightly from hips to hem. As you can see, the hem falls to above the ankle on my tall mannequin. Best for a petite size, it will be closer to full length on a shorter frame. The matching bolero jacket has darling puffed sleeves and a curved hem. Both pieces of the set are completely sheer and unlined. The jacket appears just slightly darker in color than the dress, but this is less likely to be noticeable on human skin, than it is on my bright white mannequin. The dress has thread belt loops, but no belt is present. Without other issues to note, I would say that this gorgeous peach floral lace 1930s evening gown is in very good, near excellent condition—remarkable for its age! The rayon or rayon blend, embroidered lace dress has been carefully hand-washed, but the jacket was dry-cleaned, because of the satin trim.
