Seller notes: Please read description below very carefully before bidding
Decade: 1930s Vintage Type: True Vintage
Main Colour: Beige
Absolutely stunning and extremely rare 1930s full length lace dress. This beautiful piece has a shirt like style with a fantastic collar and faux button detail. 
It also has  flattering fluttery sleeves. The dress is truly exquisitely made and is breathtaking to behold.
It would be a fantastic basis for an elegant and unique wedding dress.
 

CONDITION
This dress requires TLC.
It would require a slip to be worn as it is quite sheer.
There is some discolouration around the arms, shoulders and hem (please see photos above- including full length). The overall colour in general is a little discoloured and this is to be expected of a garment of this age. There are some light marks, but nothing obvious or distracting.
The dress would benefit from being very carefully cleaned and I would also recommend carefully dying it-simply to even out the colour and cover up the discolouration. Luckily the dress is a lovely light beige and most colours would easily cover it. 
The original belt is missing, but you could easily use your own or snip off the belt loops.
There is some damage to the lace and it will require TLC to make it wearable. There are some holes within the lace- mainly relatively small- that will require some stitches. There are also some larger areas where the lace has torn (such as the back- please see pictures). These areas will require a considerable amount of patience and skill to restore.
As is this dress is still a fantastic collectors piece but with some skill and attention it could easily be a very beautiful and perfectly wearable dress.



MEASUREMENTS (approximates) PLEASE NOTE that it is difficult to conform vintage garments to modern day sizes, this is why I do not provide sizes. PLEASE READ the measurements carefully and compare them to your own for estimate of fit.

The dress has no openings, it will need to be slipped over the head to be worn.
The dress is intended to be worn loose.

Length 60"
Bust 38"
Waist 32" (only just)
Hips 38"
 


  PLEASE NOTE
Due to some problems with buyers in the past, I am reluctantly having to be a little strict. Please carefully read the information below before bidding.

 I do not accept returns so please read the description carefully and consider all of the measurements before buying.  P&P costs include a 2nd class signed for delivery service and the cost of the packaging too.  Payment is expected within 2 days of the auction ending- failure to do so will result in being reported to ebay . 
Any questions then please message me, I'm happy to help :)

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
