Prettiest 1930s Green Floral Print Bias Cut Silk Crepe w Yellow Collar & Original Belt
I am so excited to bring you the second part of our 1930s capsule. This is one of a dozen dresses from a single owner collection of beautiful 1930s dresses. 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. Outstanding designs from this era are increasingly hard to find. Her collection represents some of the best of the era that I have seen in a very long time. Most are in excellent condition and the few included in the capsule that do have some flaws are such outstanding designs that I feel there is still room for someone to love them and wear them as they are, or perhaps to put in the additional work to repair them. 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 pretty little dress is made from a bias cut silk that has a slight starched feel to the fabric. This lets it hold its shape. The bias cut makes it drape and move unbelievably beautifully once on the body. The pattern is a pretty pale yellow floral print on a deep green backdrop with lighter green thatching worked through the pattern that gives it the look of being painted onto the silk. It's cut loose and easy through the bodice with this pretty angled seam that sits just under the bust. The waist is cut to be more loose and open and it has its original belt with a fabulous early acrylic buckle. This lets you add shape through the waist for a more defined silhouette. The skirt falls from there and it flares out all the way around the hem. The lightness of the fabric combined with the bias cut give the skirt incredible movement once on. It will move and flow around you with your slightest movement. Highlighting the neckline is this incredible pleated ruffled finish made from a soft yellow, starched silk organza. It's an incredible and pretty dress. Excellent condition with a minor note below.
Unlined and slips on to wear. Hand finishes throughout. There is a tiny bit of a mark on the edges of the collar and the top decorative part of the buckle is missing on one side. Please see the last two photos. For a dress almost 100 years old it's in remarkable condition. The bias cut should allow it to fit a range of sizes.
