$ 80.00Beautiful vintage black crepe dress from the late 30s, or early 1940s. Tiered skirt, shoulder pads and that amazing neckline. There are two bows, one at either shoulder, and then lace over the shoulders and flutter lace cap sleeves ( see condition on these below). Has a side metal zipper and a thread loop for a belt on one side ( its gone from the other side) but no belt. Medium size, I'd say. Label reads: Lisbeth Fashions.
Beautiful classic vintage black crepe dress from the early 1940s. Simple and elegant sheath style with a slightly fuller skirt. Has an interesting little bit of stitching at the left hip in front down the skirt to give it some shape and interest ending in a small kick pleat at the bottom hem with a matching really small kick pleat in back. 3/4 sleeves. Has a side metal zipper, and a short metal zipper at the back of the neck as well. Medium to large size, I'd say.
Great vintage condition. There is a bit of color fade at the shoulders and a quarter sized faded spot on one arm, and a couple of very small pinhead sized holes. The tab of the zipper in back is missing, but the zipper still works just fine you just have to grab it at the little jump rings instead. All of that is very minor and not really noticeable. The worst bit is a threadbare area near the left armpit. I have shown a photo. It has been repaired and patched prior to coming into my possession, and quite well. Dress is priced accordingly.

$ 30.00Fantastic black rain hat circa 1950s. Semi slouchy style with a squared off brim. There is a giant bow on the front and one pink rose. Has a certain Mary Poppins goes Mod feel to it. No designer label, but there is a Union Made label inside. Measures 21.5" round the inside.
$ 169.00Beyond beautiful black dress from the 1950s. The silkiest, liquid silk satin. Like a raven's wing. In the right light there's a hint of a blue sheen even, its that black. Fitted bodice with a slightly dropped waist. Princess seams, full skirt though not quite a full circle and you can see my very full crinoline is a bit too much for it, sleeveless and the shoulders are meant to be worn wide. Metal zipper up the back. I'd say small to medium sized. No label but made very well. Whomever made this even put a bit of blue grosgrain ribbon inside the waist horizontally which, I believe, is meant to keep the seams from pulling as its quite form fitted. Smart! Its not all the way round though, there are some long ends hanging inside so I think someone else unstitched part of it off at some point. You'll see it. Doesn't affect the exterior at all.
