This romantic vintage red velvet dress was custom-made in the late 1930s (possibly early 1940s), and is entirely one-of-a-kind. The maxi-length crushed red velvet is so rich. It features a gathered empire waist, with long tailored sleeves that come to a point at the cuff. It was reworked and modernized around the 1970s, with a zipper added in the back, making it easier to wear. Because of the empire waist, this can also be an incredible vintage maternity dress. Closes in the back with a zipper.

The Antique Victorian Heart Locket pictured is also available

Good vintage condition overall; there were some repairs made to the fabric at the bottom skirt towards hem. The plush velvet camouflages this, and because of the placement its entirely indiscernible when worn. With any questions about the specific condition or size, please email for additional photos or measurements, as all sales are final.
