Some of the test equipment used in early laboratories may seem archaic and useless today but their purpose and operation is interesting and historically important. 52" long on her, but will get a bit shorter if you are larger... NOTE: the rhinestone buckle is only pinned onto the belt because you're gonna want to size it to fit you. Also has a lovely long satin "sash" hanging at the side with black passementerie. It's the softest velvet I have ever felt (and I've touched a LOT of antique and vintage velvets! Measures: up to 35" bust, up to 34" waist, up to 37" hips, 52" long from shoulder to hem. You will need just a bit of sewing under the Chantilly lace (see photos)... The exterior 2 layers of Chantilly Lace is in great condition!! ;) At first glance, you will believe this to be a black velvet coat embroidered with gold lame, but at closer inspection, you will see that this is actually a 1920's gold painted velvet coat! The coat came without the black fox fur collar, but I'm selling it with the coat as it's crying out for that option to wear it either way!!!! There is no closure on the front, but you could certainly simply add a button and a loop at the waist and one at top. John Wanamaker's was one of the earliest department stores. Now I'm not a lace expert, but this lace looks like handmade Duchesse to my untrained eye. Difficult to measure because bias will fit a wide variety of bodies. but I think it will fit up to 38*' bust, up to 32" waist, up to 40" hips. It's just so perfect, you have to wonder, but if so, it's perfectly done with the right fabric. Measures: up to 48" bust (so wrap as you wish), 46" long from shoulder to hem. It's as nearly perfect as any gown can be at 110 years old! The bodice yoke and mid-sleeves are completely lace.Both of these Otto Wolff resistance boxes were used a Mount Wilson Observatory in Southern California. Wilson and the facility there had (has) a lot of very early test gear.If you've never felt 1930s silk velvet, you are missing something that feels almost as soft as chinchilla. The dress is sleeveless and has a slight Grecian feel with the open bust at front and large armholes The skirt are beaded panels over the plain silk lining It's a FABULOUS RUBY COLOR, but I can't seem to get my camera to color correct for this red. Measures: up to 40' bust, but these are meant to be worn large, so best for mannequin size of 35/36" bust. This is a tiny size bodice, however, there are pleats in the bodice, so.... here was have a slim-fitted 1930's gorgeous color ruby silk velvet coat with long sleeves. even though it needs to be reshaped as you can see from the photos. Love the other details like the ruching on the skirt sides, upper skirt and wide cuffs, the puffy sleeves, and the pigeon shape bodice front.
Because there’s a ’40s clothing lover in every woman, I decided to model 5 ’40s dresses representative of the era’s trends from Hinesite Vintage to show you how these nearly 70-year-old dresses can be worn for 2012!It’s easy to see why ’40s fashion is so adored by the 21st century girl — styles were constructed for fit, flattery function.Austere-leaning fashion became trendy during the war torn ’40s, and women valued dresses that reflected the era’s ethos for patriotic and classic styles.I was hesitant to model these ’40s dresses because I’ve never declared myself a ’40s or ’50s fashion kind of girl.Since I’m more of a ‘70s clothing kind of gal, I was worried the era just wouldn’t look good on me!
