ARCHIVE - 1920s Pink Satin and Cobweb Lace Three Piece Set

£1.00 Sold out

This lovely 1920s satin and lace three piece set is in impeccable vintage condition and could easily be worn by a vintage bride. The set is comprised of a luxurious silky satin slip in warm pink/peach, with a shift style overlay dress almost entirely of delicate cobweb lace. There is also a long sleeved jacket in matching lace, designed to be worn open over the top of the ensemble. The bias cut slip has minimal detail bar a pretty cotton lace trim at the hem. It has a V neck with spaghetti straps and piped seams beneath the bust. The short sleeved lace overlay has a modest V neckline and the breast of the bodice is of satin which meets the lace in an attractive zig zag design that peaks over the bust on either side, and continues around the reverse of the garment. A seam across the hip alludes to the popular drop waist design of the era, while another diagonal seam sloping gently from left to right forms an asymmetrical hem at the base of the skirt. The collarless jacket falls directly over the bust and finishes level with the waist. This truly exquisite ensemble is a rare find and would best suit US size 4, UK size 8 due to the cut of the hip on the overlay. However, the slip has plenty of give in the bust and hip and could happily accommodate a larger size.

We also have an extensive offline collection. If you let us know your size, style, favourite colour to wear and perhaps your budget, we can browse through our archive in advance of your appointment. 

Do I need to bring anything with me?

Clients may wish to bring modern shapewear when trying on garments from certain eras, especially the 1950s. Vintage clothing was often worn with undergarments that shaped the waist and as such is tailored for them.

We have a huge variety of slip dresses and petticoats to complete your look; many of which are also for sale.

You may also wish to bring your favourite footwear. We often find a classic pair of nude shoes work well when trying on, or a pair in gold or silver.
