Vintage BNWT Shubette of London size 10 white lace dress

£50.00

Product description

This vintage dress from the early 1960's still has the original labels attached. Made by Shubette of London, well known and valued for their little black party dresses, they specialised mainly in special occasion wear. This dress is made in stiff off-white, flower patterned lace picked out with silver thread, and is lined with a satin-type fabric. Fitted to the waist, it has a V neckline and short sleeves, all of which have a metallic silver, lacy edging. The skirt is a narrow A line with a 14" split centrally from the hem. A double line of the silver lace is sewn from the middle of the waist seam to the hem, edging the split on each side. At the waist is a stiffened 1.5" wide belt with a circular diamante buckle and the dress is fastened with a zip at the back. Although this dress is unworn it does have some age damage with light brown spots along the inside of the zip, back neck facings and below. Also there are blue and yellow stains on the bottom 8" of the skirt at the back and what appears to be water damage on the lining inside this area. As the dress is well below knee length this could be cut off making it shorter. The original labels are interesting examples of their era and state that this is style number 7880. Careful measurements have been taken as this is a very small dress for the label size.
