Vintage Long-Sleeve Dress -M- Purple Velvet


This a stunning long velvet dress. There is a drop waist and velvet-covered buttons in the bodice. The long sleeves have elastic at the cuffs. Open at the neckline with a notched collar. The body of the dress (not the arms) is lined with lilac acetate. This is a statement dress, for sure! The seams are not serged, which makes me think it could be as early as the 1920s.

Condition: Gently-Used in good vintage condition with one underarm repair. There is a 1" mend on the full part of the skirt in the back and there is an 8" area of thinness (not quite a rip or hole - see detail photo) - luckily, with the fullness of the skirt portion and the lining, this is not easily visible. The dress has been hand-washed.

Measurements in inches:
bust= 40
waist= 38
hips= 42 measured a couple of inches below the horizontal seam
shoulder to horizontal seam= 26
length= 53
no size tag
