Long wool and cotton overdress with an old world feel. Pulls over and has hooks and eyes down the back. My best guess as to age of this is thats been cobbled together from various pieces of varying eras. I see bits that appear 30s or 40s and others that appear 50s or 60s. No labels. Measurements below. This comes from an enormous collection of Old Hollywood Movie Costumes I was lucky enough to stumble across. More about those later after the measurements so please read on...
Good to great vintage condition. Very wearable but does have flaws and signs of life. Some seams need to be restitched. and there are small holes and marks as befitting the type of costume it is. See photos for examples. The material could be upcycled or repurposed as well. That wool is amazing.
Please note that all items in this Costume section may have minor other flaws ( or example; missing snaps, small areas of loose seams, pinholes, etc..) that I have not listed as its just not possible to find and or list every minor thing as these have lived quite a life! Priced accordingly, As Is and Final Sale.
Measurements taken lying flat. Doubled at bust, waist and hip.
Shoulder to shoulder: 19.5"
Bust ( or chest): 47"
Waist: undefined but approx. 47"
Shoulder to bottom hem: 51.5"
PLEASE READ: I acquired an absolutely enormous collection of Hollywood movie costumes. Ranging across the board from Paramount, Universal, Unified Costumers and more. The last known film much of the items were used in was Lawrence of Arabia but we have no way of knowing which ones and there are others from other films. Most likely they were used on extras or smaller roles, I have not come across anything I can pinpoint to a major name from that film. Many of these were made much earlier, and I have found dates written on tags within from as early as the 1940s, though I believe some are even earlier. I have given as much information as I can about each item in the listing. Much has been lost to time however. That said, these are an extraordinary piece of movie history and I'm honored to be a part of it all.
Please note: These are vintage, preworn and/or preloved items. I do my best to list any issues, but signs of wear should be expected. Please feel free to convo me with any questions. I'm truly happy to help in any way possible and I'm always up for a chat. Any accessories shown, including crinolines, are for display only, not included unless otherwise stated.
