Product Details
Vintage late 1930s early 1940s black sheer party dress with gorgeous scroll appliqué on bodice. This vintage 30s dress has scoop neckline, long puff sleeves (with small pads at shoulders), smocking on faux pockets on front accented with bows, and large pleats from waist. The appliqué is made with metallic gold threading and is weak in some areas. I spent several hours reinforcing and restitching most of the appliqué back on. Sleeves also had tears that have been repaired with black thread. When worn they're not directly visible.

- 38" length
- 24"-26" waist
- 34" bust
- 14" bodice
- 14" shoulders
- 25" sleeves

- feels like organza blend, not stiffened though
- great vintage condition, still wears beautifully

Sustainable Clothing Care

From over a decade's worth of experience as a vintage clothing seller and collector, we are sharing some general care and laundering advice gleaned from women of the past. Practicing these "vintage" methods is another way to be more sustainable.

  • Wear a slip with your garments to keep your garments cleaner longer (in most cases it takes much less water/resources to launder a slip than it does a garment)
  • Wear your garments more than once before laundering
  • Use cold water to launder your garments, hot water can deconstruct the fibers of your garments more and also can cause shrinkage.
  • If using a machine, only wash full loads of laundry
  • Hang garments to dry (every Adored Vintage girl loves seeing clothes on a line!) Dryers can really be rough on your garments (that lint trap is literally bits of your clothes as it slowly falls apart!)
  • Spot clean garments immediately
  • Hand wash your clothing as often as possible.
  • Learn simple repair and mend skills to increase the longevity of your garments.
