Vintage 1930s Black Rayon Crepe LIttle Black Wiggle Dress
Oh 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. The sleeves are 3/4, and the skirt is a straight pencil style. Has a side metal zipper and there is a matching belt that is sewn on at either side. . Small to extra small, I'd say. No label.
Excellent vintage condition. The only things to note are some loose threads around the waist from the seam, totally covered up by the belt when its buckled, and you could trim them down anyway if they bother you. And there is some faint greyish smudges on the skirt mostly and one or two on the back of the bodice. Watermarks perhaps? Maybe some fabric dye would cover those up, I was too chicken to try it and they don't bother me. I'd recommend maybe a pressing as well, on the skirt at least.
Measurements when lying flat, Doubled at bust, waist, and hip Armpit to armpit across bust: 36" This is a dolman sleeve so measurement here is appprox within an inch or so. Waist: 24" Hips: 34" Shoulder to waist: approx. 16" Shoulder to bottom hem: 46"

I do my utmost best to list any issues, but signs of wear should be expected, and there are occasionally small things I won't deem worthy of note.
