1930s Sequin and Velvet Dress | wounded bird
era: late 30s or early 40s
bodice length: 16"
total length: 48"
really interesting lace/net/soutache bodice decorated with opaly blue sequin flowers with metal-back rhinestone and mirror centers. lush black silk velvet skirt.
two excellent old metal Talon zippers. sleeves have inner stiff net "pads" to give shape. a really nicely-made piece!
condition: skirt is excellent. lace bodice is dry, has multiple splits, and will need reinforcement/restoration to be worn for any length of time. could work for a photoshoot, or a rework project (the skirt is still nearly perfect and there's so many great elements to be salvaged!)
