CLEARANCE: Vintage 1930s Yellow Dress

This is one of those pieces I couldn't leave behind no matter the damage. This was stunning in its day and is still amazing. It was too small for my dress form so I have displayed it pinned to the dress form. Pale lemoney yellow organza or organdy with a white print of bows and flowers, semi sheer full length party dress from the 30s or possibly 40s. Over a solid opaque yellow acetate slip. Short puff sleeves, fitted bodice with a gather at the décolleté, deep scoop back with decorative fabeic covered buttons up it, and then a long flowy skirt. Metal zipper on the side of both dress and slip. No label. This is a great deal for someone who may want to upcycle pieces of it, or likes a shabby look, or has better seamstress skills than I do. Also good for a costume or as a pattern or study. Please read condition below.
Good vintage condition. Obviously it has issues, however, this dress is still wearable, if very gently. The slip is totally sound, just some marks and foxing. The dress is a bit different. There are tears and holes scattered pretty much all over but what's not damaged is still fairly sound, so maybe you could recycle parts of it. There is some large areas of discoloration and foxing. I've some an example of this in the last photo. Would also be great for a tattered photo shoot costume! At the very least you'd have a workable slip dress. Obviously priced accordingly and sold as is and this is why it's in my Scratch and Dent section.
