$ 24.00I love the lavender-ey pink color of this pretty party dress. Its circa 1950s or early 60s. Would have had a little bolero jacket or top over the bodice and the hooks for that are still there. Its too small for my dress form by a bit so it's pinned in back but the zipper works great. This is an opaque layer of acetate or rayon with a sheer chiffon that feels like a poly maybe over the top. Full skirt but not a full circle, would be great with a crinoline, which I have not shown it with here. Sleeveless, wide waistband with a pellon lining to help it hold its shape. Zipper in the back. No label. Please see condition below as it has some issues. Small size, I'd say. Or extra small.

$ 30.00 - Sold OutSuper fun genuine vintage 1950s does 20s flapper girl dress in black nylon with black fringe trim. This is circa 1950s. I had so much fun discovering all the nifty stuff about this costume. For one, its a step in, so your crotch is covered when you kick those legs up! And then it has covered snaps all down one side, and garters to hold your stockings up. The neckline is covered in rhinestone trim, as are the velvet shoulder straps, and then at some point someone added that broach to the center of the bust line. I don't believe it was original to the dress as it looks much more contemporary. There are layers upon layers of black fringe, and then this one random area of dark orangey-red just for fun at the right bust. I'd say in the small to medium size range. There is one small cloth label that proclaims it to be "Style 925". Please see condition below.
$ 15.00Fancy gold damask shirtwaist style dress circa 1950s. Five covered buttons up the front and a metal zipper. Pretty tie bow at the neck. Long sleeves with three buttons at the cuffs.

Please see below.

In the photo the zipper on the lining is undone. No label. Small to medium I'd say. Please see condition below.
Good vintage condition. The satin layer is actually in great condition, the only thing I've been able to spot on that is a faint watermark on the skirt and some minor color fade and a small amount ( maybe an inch long) of disintegration in the armpits. One could open up those armpits and make them a little bigger, cutting out the damaged bit completely. The chiffon is another story unfortunately. Its falling apart in several places, and the rest has faded areas. I think I'd just remove it entirely and maybe recycle the good parts of it for something else. The satin in this would make a lovely dress on its own. Also, the zipper on this dress needs to be repaired. Priced accordingly and why its in my Scratch and Dent section and as is.
Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at bust and waist.
Armpit to armpit across bust: 35"
Shoulder to Waist: 16"

$ 20.00Lovely full length opera coat circa 1960s. Feels like a silk or silk/rayon blend satin, fully lined in same. Elbow length sleeves, pockets at both hips and oversized buttons. Label reads: I Magnin. Probably a medium to large. Please see condition below as this does have some issues.

$ 96.00Utterly lovely black mourning skirt from the early 1900s, possibly late 1800s. Fine mesh fabric, unlined. Perfect pintuck pleats all round the waist and each one is tacked down to just below the hips so it really holds its shape. The waistband is reinforced inside with a wide ivory grosgrain band. Heavy duty hook and eye closures which are probably meant to go up the back due too the way the pleats come together below it, but I've shown it here at the side. Small size I'd say.
$ 30.00Beautiful baby dress in white cotton circa early 1900s. French seams, two real shell buttons in the back. High empire waist, short cap sleeves made of fluttery handkerchief edged swiss dot trim. There are rows of pintucking all round the bottom of the skirt and then gorgeous cutwork below that. Delicate lace at the neck. Just beautiful!
$ 219.00This is a stunning dress from the 1920s, possibly early 30s in the softest, most delicious, black silk velvet. It is tooo small for my dress forms so I pinned her to show her shape. Look at that gorgeous antiqued gold tone beading round the neckline! There is a ruched ribbon of black velvet going down the bib of the bodice which is echoed at the sleeve cuffs. The cuffs have hook and eye closures. There is a slight drop waist with an asymmetrical waist seam for a bohemian, gypsy feel. There is no opening in this dress ( no zipper or snaps or anything, it merely pulls over the head) so do be sure you have room to get into it, per the measurements. There is the tiniest of labels at the back that reads: Cash's, and then a scattering of small labels with numbers on them, various sizes I suppose. Extra small to small I'd say.
$ 25.00Beautiful white cotton girls dress--or possibly a chemise top for a slightly older child. This would most likley have been the under slip beneath a christening or baptism dress. Tank style with one button holding a shoulder together to make it easier to get on a little one. Darling little art deco-ey lace trim at the bottom of the skirt and then again a few inches up. There is an interesting gather at the back, which I believe is not original to the dress. I suspect it was added at some later point to make the dress fit some little girl a bit better. I've left it but its a matter of removing a few easy stiches to take it back out, which would really help it fit that older child I spoke of.
$ 30.00Beautiful white cotton girls smock or over dress. This would most likley have been worn over a slip underneath. Longer sleeves with beautiful scalloped cuffs. Pintucking and cutwork lace at the collar then that's trimmed in the same scalloped trim as the cuffs. Empire waist, very high. Two tiny buttons at the back of the neck then its open all down the back. The bottom hem is pintucked all the way round in several rows. Its just gorgeous. I'd say this is for a slightly older baby, but do please see the measurements as child sizing is not my forte.

Medium size, I'd say. No label.
$ 60.00Beautiful silk blush colored 1920s slip. Pretty lace trim across the top. Beautiful blush pink, silk straps, chevron cut to the bottom hem. No label. Probably a medium size. This may be a silk blend, I'm not sure. Its gorgeous and lovely against the skin. Slight A shape in cut and meant to be an easy fit.
$ 99.00Absolutely wonderful and charming 1920s day dress. White rayon top with a deep V neck ( someone added a snap at some point for modesty to hold this closed) bordered in a white and blackish-green trim. There's a line of horizontal pintucking all round the bottom of the bodice. The skirt is a black crepe and just has wonderful pleating and pintucking both front and back.

Please see condition as this beauty does have some issues.
$ 120.00Beautiful dupioni silk 1920s slip. Deep peach color with lovely ivory lace trim, French seams inside. I believe this is, in fact, French.

$ 86.00Beautiful vintage black crepe dress from the late 30s, or early 1940s. This dress has an amazing bodice in front as it has interesting pleats from the shoulders towards the collarbone and soft dolman short sleeves that give it a flutter look without the flutter sleeves. But what makes this dress extra cool is the bodice in back. That gorgeous box pleat with the keyhole peekaboo neckline above all topped off with two pearlized round buttons! How perfect with a gorgeous updo! And don't miss the darling pleats on the skirt in back too. Has a side metal zipper and there are thread loops for a belt but no belt. Small to medium size, I'd say.
$ 80.00Beautiful vintage black crepe dress from the late 30s, or early 1940s. Tiered skirt, shoulder pads and that amazing neckline.

$ 59.00Beautiful deep peach-ey pink Vintage Tap Pant Style Panty from the 1930s possibly 40s. French seams, buttons at the side, scalloped edge at the bottom hem with ivory piping.

$ 89.00Oh how I wish this fit me. Beautiful vintage black crepe dress from the late 30s, or early 1940s. I adore the body hugging fit and the slightly raised collar and cuffed sleeves.

$ 44.00Softest rick black silk velvet skirt circa late 20s or 30s. Wonderful slits up both sides that were sewn kind of oddly ( and I can't tell if it was intentional or not actually) to give the bottom hem a slightly asymmetrical look and give some fun shape and movement when you walk. Grosgrain ribbon inside the waist band. Two hook and eye closures at the waist on the side followed by three snaps underneath down the hip. No label, most certainly homemade. Small size.
$ 295.00Stunning 1930s wedding gown in a champagne / darker ivory satin. Absolutely beautiful! Long full sleeves with lace at the wrist and buttoned cuffs, matching lace trim across the collarbone. Dozens of buttons up the back and a long train. The satin on this is super soft. Label reads, Dancing Mode.
$ 89.00Beautiful vintage black crepe dress from the late 30s, or early 1940s. Take a look at that divine bodice design with the mesh panel in the décolletage, the swooping "upside down" collar and the fabric covered buttons. There is a nude nylon panel behind that mesh for modesty as well, by the way and an elastic band that one can bring up over the back of the neck to help the front hold it's shape. The sleeves are 3/4, it is slightly drop waisted and the skirt is a straight pencil style with a wonderful additional panel down the front that swings out when one walks. Has a side metal zipper and there are thread loops for a belt but no belt. Small to medium size, I'd say. Label says " International Original, New York".
