    Second dress I picked up at estate sale. It is just sheer fabric. Very pretty not much damage to speak of. I was surprised to see a snap. Any idea how this was worn? Age? Thank you!!!!

    It looks like a late 1930's early 1940's daytime dressy dress. Lunch, church, meetings etc. It would have worn over a dark, probably brown slip. Does it have any shoulder pads or shoulder lifters? The snap might have been from a previous collar.
    Does it have a side placket. A full length image would help with dating

    if it's mid calf I would say 1930s, they would often wear sheer dresses with slips underneath. personally my favourite silhouette :)

    More pictures, sorry for delay.. I am loving learning so much.... I keep some and then sell some to justify the ones that I keep. My mannequins are going to all be very well dressed lol. She is a glorious 55" from collar to hem.

    You certainly come across some beauties! It would of course be best to see it on a dress form or mannequin or person to be sure. I am seeing mid 1930s, with that collar and length. But the collar may not be original. And it is evening length, is it not? So maybe later 1930s.
