Virtual Vintage View - 1930s Peach & Brown Gown & Cape


I know that it's hard sometimes to get an idea of how clothing really is in person just by looking at photos online. So I thought I'd try to do little virtual view videos of a few pieces, to maybe give a better idea of how fabulous some pieces really are.
I'm starting with this 1930s gown and cape because I just love it, and if I had a life with somewhere special to go, I'd be wearing this. It's just a great style and fit, and really cool fabric too. It's one of the last dresses from the estate of NYC milliner Jessie Laurent Harper .
Now, hopefully my shakey camera skills won't make you seasick, and all the stuff in the background won't distract you! There is no sound other than maybe a few sniffs and hmmms from me. Once I get better at moving around, filming and talking at the same time I'll try some narration.

Please enjoy the film . . .




More details -

#FAB17- Dusty Peach floral Crepe Gown & cape - $255.00

Era - 1930s
Measurements - Dress is 54 inches long, fits 34 inch bust, 27 waist and 37 inch hips. The cape is 16 inches wide across the top of the shoulders and 42 inches long down the back.
Label - none
Fabric - a honeycomb-like crepe rayon weave

The fabric is a soft woven rayon crepe in a dusty peach floral with black-brown background. The cape is just like a little rounded coccoon with a seam across the top for the shoulders. The inner edge of the cape is lined with a wide strip of solid peach and a strip of solid black crepe, otherwise the rest of the cape is unlined. There is a strap on each side to hold the cape into your arms. The cape is angled down the sides to become longer in the back.
The floorlength gown is sexy and clingy. The front has a v-neck that has a strip of peach fabric on one side and a black strip on the other side. The fabric strips are twisted together on the front of the bust and stitched into place. Then they hang loose in two long pieces down the front of the gown. Clingy over the hips and a slit on the front-side of the lower skirt. The back is also a low v-back and there are snap and hook openings on the back of the gown. The gown is unlined. From the estate of NY Milliner Jessie Laurent Harper.

Condition - This set is in very good to excellent condition and it is totally wearable. There are three light 1/4+ inch spots on the bust of the dress. The cape has the faintest, faintest, faintest hint of discolor (I don't even want to call it discolor. The color just doesn't seems as sharp, not really discolored) on the shoulders, and there are 2 light brown 1/2 age spots on the front of shoulder, which I point to in the video.
