1930s Dolene Undies Bias Cut Lingerie Dress

Wonderful vintage lingerie piece that you could even wear as a pretty dress since it is opaque. This is a classic 1930s Jean Harlow-esque fantasy piece. It is made of a beautiful liquid silk that is dyed a pretty iced baby blue. The top has panels on each bust and the back and little braided straps that go up and over each shoulder. The skirt flares out and is cut on the bias so it drapes perfectly into place when one. The original belt is present and is also that same fine braiding. It is in super overall condition however the color has faded here and there giving it a lovely shabby chic feel. This happens with these hand dyed pieces from this era. I have tried to capture it but it was difficult. It is in the treasure section because of this but is a real gem regardless.
