Original Vintage 1930's Tea Dress-Hollywood Glamour

Lovely 30's black taffeta dance dress with shots of shiny black detail throughout like exploding fireworks.

This is a classic 30's bias cut dress with a sweetheart detail at the underbust seam and gentle gathers to enhance the bust line.

These gathers are echoed in the pretty puffed sleeves and again at the neck with a stand up frill that is lined in a delicate lemon acetate.

There are two little covered buttons at the waist and a tie belt at the back to nip it in.

Gorgeous ballerina length flowing bias cut skirt with exquisite detail at the hem-straight at the back and then gently sweeping up at the front with a cheeky scollap to show your fabulous 30's shoes.

The dress has no label although there is the remains of a size label.

Excellent vintage condition for its age.

a great addition to any vintage wardrobe.

It seems to be a slightly larger size too
Actual dress measurements;
Bust 36"/91.5cm

Remember the skirt is cut on the cross so there is some give.

Terms of Sale

We are committed to the highest standards in authenticity and preparation of the vintage clothes we sell, and do our best to ensure that you won't find any unexpected problems with them.

But these are always one-off items, with non-standard sizing and around 40 to 80 years old, so only rarely will they be in mint condition.

Bearing all that in mind, we want you to be thrilled with anything you buy from us, so if you have any reason to think that it is not right, please drop us a line. We will always accept returns (14 days, and you will need to pay the return postage cost) and can either exchange for an alternative (in which case, we'll cover the cost of shipping the exchange item to you) or give a refund on the cost of the item (the shipping charge will then normally be deducted from the refund you receive).


The actual dress measurements are specified in my listing above.

A good way to check sizing is to use the measurements provided to compare against a similar dress of your own which you know fits you well.

I do give dress sizes for guidance, and just so you know, this is how I work it out:

UK size Bust in cm Waist in cm Hips in cm Euro size
8 80 - 84 62 - 66 87 - 91 36
10 84 - 88 66 - 70 91 - 96 38
12 88 - 92 70 - 75 96 - 101 40
14 92 - 97 75 - 80 101 - 106 42
16 97 - 102 80 - 85 106 - 111 44
18 102 - 107 85 - 91 111 - 116 46
