Please scroll down for images of the 1930s Silk Velvet and Rayon Dress shown in greater detail.

Circa: 1930s.

Material: Silk velvet and rayon.

Colors: Sapphire. This color was not the easiest to photograph, so please note that it is actually a bit darker than shown in the close-up photos below. I specifically used bright lights to show the flaws in the piece, so the blue appears brighter than it actually is. It's a lovely deep blue hue, most accurately shown in images in which I'm (Jenn) modeling it.

Closure: Single side metal zipper.

Label: Magicvel.

Measurements:

  • Shoulders: 15"
  • Bust: 36" - 38"
  • Waist: 34"
  • Length: 43"

Condition: Good.

Of Note

  • As you can see from the Good rating above, this beautiful - and quite old - dress has seen some action in its day. The structure is in EXCELLENT condition, with only a single hand repair made to the waist seam (see picture below); however, as you'll read, there are issues of note.
  • There are multiple fabric flaws throughout the piece, many pictured below. The largest grouping of flaws is on the back of the skirt, near the back of the right knee area.
  • The back, left sleeve has very slight discoloration.
  • As mentioned above, the dress is a darker shade of blue than certain pictures may appear, those images taken under bright light so as to better show flaws. That said, only when the light catches the dress in a particular way can the flaws be seen.
  • This piece has been priced accordingly, so if you are seeking a lovely 1930s dress that is not pristine, but certainly wearable and unquestionably stylish, then this baby may be for you!

Rating System

Vintage clothing is loved clothing. Sometimes the lives of our pieces have been exquisite, with great care taken to maintain their fabric, shape, and overall condition. In other cases, garments may have been somewhat less well-preserved, resulting in minor flaws, such as discoloration, staining, and/or tears. 

Whatever the condition, we want you to know it thoroughly.

To that end, the Reel Vintage rating system, based on an industry standard, is designed to give you as much information as possible before purchasing your item(s). 

  • Mint: The item has never been worn or shows virtually no signs of wear. Rare and pristine.
  • Near Mint: The item shows only light wear, with no blemishes.
  • Excellent: The item is structurally intact and shows some wear, but has no blemishes.
  • Very Good: The item shows wear and has some blemishes, such as light staining and/or minor flaws.
  • Good: The item is wearable, but may shows signs of deterioration (staining, non-seam rips, etc.). 

We are always available to our clients for questions and encourage you to contact us. We'll do our best to respond to you within 24 hours.
