Comes with the original tie belt to tie with bow at back. Also, if you haven't seen 1930s silk velvet, you will be amazed at the sheen you will get from the light hitting it... Wear with or without the attached original sash belt (only held on by a few stitches). It's just so perfect, you have to wonder, but if so, it's perfectly done with the right fabric. Measures: up to 48" bust (so wrap as you wish), 46" long from shoulder to hem. It's as nearly perfect as any gown can be at 110 years old! The bodice yoke and mid-sleeves are completely lace.

The beauty of that is that you can make this one dress look totally different depending on what color you wear under. However the entire jacket (except for the sleeves) is lined in chinchilla. As you'll see from the photos, this will either look like gold lame or a bronze lame depending on the lighting. And WOW, look at the accordion gathers at the one hip and "bow" at the other hip!!! Measures: 34" bust, 25" waist (though measures 29"), up to 36" hips, 55" long from shoulder to hem.

So, unless you are an exhibitionist, you'll want to wear an underdress! And nothing at all is better than a 1920's trained lame gown!

Measures: up to 32/33" bust, up to 24" waist, up to 34" hips, 58" long from shoulder to hem. Measures: up to 40" bust, up to 38" waist, up to 45" hips, 32" long from shoulder to hem... However, I'm 5'2" and the sleeves are too long for me, so I'd suggest a taller gal is better... I moved on to silk and crepe Edwardian gown and I still have a closet full of my "first babies". So I assume there are other young girls or young women out there who want to get started as I did. This dress needs to go to a good home who will baby it, and give her a facelift! Measures: about 32/33" bust, about 25/26" waist, 56" long from shoulder to hem, 66" long in back (train). I only found one tiny professional repair of black lace in skirt. I would probably wear with a rhinestone buckle belt... The only real issue at all with the dress is one small loss of velvet at the hemline (see photo)... You could hem it up but it's already fairly short, so... you will probably just want to snuggle with this velvet... This blouse if from the mid-1910's, usually worn with a simple skirt or suit. there are tiny age spots here and there and a few minor tiny holes (see photo) near shoulder and upper one sleeve. I have a few large closeup photos of the lace for you to tell me!

Do you happen to have a black walking skirt from the 1910 era? or if you are short, you can just take up the sleeves right above the cuff... The exterior dress and underslip skirt is quite good condition (though there are tiny holes at the shoulder and a few here and there that will hardly seen once the under dress is fixed. Black silk satin (good weight) gown with ivory net lace "underskirt" to about knee length, with a different embroidered black net lace over that to about ankle length. The interior isn't too bad, but at the upper portion of the interior lining is torn (see photos). I might consider adding Chantilly lace trim at the hemline, or satin or velvet ribbon which would lengthen the dress... Often these blouses are white cotton rather than as sheer as this crepe blouse. The skirt lining is cotton so it's perfect, and there are 4 layers of material at the hemline (see photos).

These cloches were created either with various color bullion threads or for a more natural look... a slight nod to the Egyptian design so popular in the 1920s (partly due to the unearthing of King Tut's tomb in 1922). Under the bright lights you might see a tiny bit of darkening under arms, but most of this gown is still bright and shiny with very little tarnishing.

Not perfect condition (due to a tiny breaks in the netting all over) but still in remarkable condition for any lace gown about 80 years old. Love the very low back and the lace drape "sleeves" over sleeveless gown. If you've never felt 1930s silk velvet, you are missing something that feels almost as soft as chinchilla. Measures: up to 42" bust, up to 42" waist, up to 45" hips, 47" long from shoulder to hem., but these are meant to be worn large, so will look great on smaller gals as well. Basically in very good condition with just tiny holes (see photos) which you won't really see unless wearing white under. This 2-piece gown has been in my personal collection for about 10 years now.She wasn't old enough for it to be hers, but may have been collected by her? They came with the outfit, so you may want to purchase them with the habit. MEASUREMENTS: Bodice measures 32" bust, 12" across back, 24" waist. The lovely yellow printed silk is in quite good condition (with the exception of a hole at the front skirt and one on one sleeve, and minor underarm discoloration (see photos).Skirt measures: 26" waist, 38" long from waist to hem in front, 46" long in back. Except those from Kerteux Soeurs, ,,,and from Worth". HOWEVER, the pale yellow/ivory silk trim is mostly totally shredded. However, I'm certainly not going to remove a lovely label like this! the blue silk side of this burnoose has water stains (see photos), so it's really best to wear as it was intended with the black exterior and the blue trim with burnished gold bullion rope trim. The bodice has a black chiffon overlay that is the only area with tiny issues.Otherwise I'm pricing for the beauty of the gown itself. Just wear with a simple white blouse under, or dress up with a bright color under.... 1/2 length puffy sleeves with lovely cutout detail at the bottom of the sleeves and back. It's fairly lightweight, so not a winter coat, but rather an evening coat. The beauty (beside the velvet) is in the swing of the design at the lower back. Look at all the closeup photos to see all the pretty details... I'm not that great at knowing names to fabrics, but look closely at this fabric.. It's an ivory silk dress covered with black netting which is embroidered with Excellent condition with only issue being the netting on the sleeve draping (and perhaps a bit on the side draping) that you might trim for a crisp edge, and the black sequins at the back waist have browned threads so they will eventually need to be re-sewn, but still fine as is. Sadly there is some tearing of the chiffon on the top layer of the 3 layered chiffon/net sleeves (see photos)., and as always, there is tearing in the lining.Embroidered in a stylized leaf pattern of white on white. This is easily seen by looking at the photo of the interior to see the seaming and then volume of the lower back skirt. Here's an interesting article to give you some idea of how important she was to fashion of the era! https://rbkclibraries.wordpress.com/2013/07/12/margaine-lacroix-and-the-dresses-that-shocked-paris/ I have had this dress in my closet for years... It's so simple, but so elegant and in near perfect condition. the lining is nearly gone, but I'm leaving it as found so someone can reline in similar fabric. it's a fairly openweave crepe-like of cotton or linen (wears great!! There is an attached lace bolero giving an extra layer to the all lace/net bodice. The wired back neck, pretty sleeves, 3 tiered skirt, under layer of netting. There are also small marks here and there on the dress and dirty along hemline.They are mostly all there, but some are missing, and some fall off. Wide enough sleeves to be worn (even though they look thin). Might have originally had more satin ribbon under the lace... It's a tiny gown, so my mannequin is a bit too large for it, but it closes fine up the back.
