Elegant 1950s Jobere New York Deep Blue Silk & Silk Chiffon Dress w Lace Detailing

I am very excited to bring you our latest mini capsule collection. This is one of nine dresses from a single owner collection. Her collection was lovingly sourced over decades and she has decided that it is time let them back out into the world for others to enjoy. For this capsule we have moved forward to the 1940s and 1950s. Really good examples from this era are becoming increasingly hard to find and these are all gorgeous little examples of that time period. This is just a tiny sampling of her overall collection and I hope to have more of these capsules for you in the future.

This stunning little dress is from the Jobere label out of New York and it is made from a deep blue silk mixed with silk chiffon and a pretty corded lace. It is beautifully made with detailing that runs around the upper portion of the bodice. It is cut wide across the shoulders so that it sits just on the outer edge of each shoulder. This leaves a bare expanse of skin across the neck and at the back it dips slightly lower. The bodice skims over you and then it nips in at waist with the shape there created by vertical seaming. The waist is detailed with panels of silk chiffon for a pretty softness. The skirt falls from under that and widens out as it nears the hem. I love the wide panel of silk that runs all the way around the hem and ends in a flat bow on one side. This wide ribbon finish at the bottom serves a dual purpose of not only adding detail but it also gives the hem extra structure so that the dress retains its shape once on.  At the very top of the bodice there is a wide nude colored added panel that covered with a deep blue cord lace. This adds the prettiest most romantic detail. It’s a lovely little dress. Overall great condition but it does have some small issues to review below.

The dress is fully lined in a copper coloured silky rayon and it closes with a back zipper. The lace hand applied. There is some separation to the lace throughout. It could be worm as is or the lace removed or replaced if you wished. There is also fraying at the very edges of the skirt here and there. Please see the photos after the label shot.
