1930s Unlabeled Deep Blush Silk Ribbon Organza Dress w Slip & Floral Belt

This amazing dress from the 1930s is far from perfect but I am hoping that someone with a true love for dresses from this era will fall in love and take the time and effort to restore it. It is truly beautiful and deserves to have all its original beauty recaptured. Its flaws are not a deal breaker but it will take some time and effort to make it fully wearable again. Sold as found.

The dress is just amazing and the fabric is equally wonderful. It is a pale bush nude color that is pretty much transparent and the fabric is a silk organza that has an almost ribbon effect with the cross pattern that runs through it. The lines that you see give is some structure and form and the fabric is incredible when you feel and see it in real life. This pops over the slip that came with the dress. The skirt is tremendously full and you could easily add a fuller crinoline under it if you wanted a very full skirted effect. The top is that classic sweetheart design with a gathered bodice and pouf capped sleeves. It has its original velvet ribbon belt with a spray of flowers that hooks around the waist. Please review the condition notes below and the photos carefully before purchasing as it is sold as is and final sale.

The dress is unlined and meant to be worn over the rayon slip that comes with it. The slip closes with a metal side zipper. The dress slips over the head and closes with a series of snaps that follow the waist seam and the side seam. All the photos of the damaged areas are after the photo of the bouquet. The slip is sound but has some marks on the back skirt and under each arm as shown. The outer dress has some dustiness to it and some  light grubbiness under the arms. The damage on it is primarily along the seams so it could be repaired with care or even cut down a size and it would be perfect again. Almost every seam of the bodice would need reinforcement or repair as they are al loose or opened completely. There are some storage marks on the skirt, numerous small tears and unraveling on parts of the seam at the hem. It has not been cleaned and is in as found condition. Please review all of the provided photos. It would be magnificent if restored but is currently in fair condition at best. In person the color presents as a touch deeper and more a dusty pink then how it photoed. The shots here do not come close to doing it justice.
