Seller: lovethemthreads (572) 100%, Location: Solo Bordado, CA, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 330533727448 Hand made Egyptian assuit dress, either an original 1920's construction or made sometime after the 1920's from assuit shawls. The design is of a traditional kaftan. The size is loose fitting allowing for one size fits most. The front a "V" neckline, the sleeves bell capped. Found in a strong and very good vintage condition, with the following: a few tiny separations in the tulle, not many, not large or obvious. There is a light green tarnish(?) on a few of the metallic bits photo #7. There is a red band with snaps that serves as a lining at the neckline. The snaps perhaps used to attach onto a veil or scarf (?). The cuffs lined with a red fabric as is the collar and lower chest. The mid back of the dress has a black ribbon attached that is similar to elastic that has lost its stretchability. The purpose of this ribbon was to gather the dress in the back giving it shape. The ribbon, however, was lightly basted onto the tulle and most of it has come undone (photo 12) and needs re-attachment. Bear in mind the material is metal over transparent tulle. It is highly recommended a lining whether a long dress or a slip to be necessary. The dress was hand sewn and it would be a good idea to go over some portions of the stitching on the seams to reinforce where seam separation is evident, as an example see photo #10. The dress was pinned at the collar opening to a black dress for background, the bottom background a white skirt. Length back center collar to hem edge is 50 inches.Hem width is 4 inches for a longer length can be adjusted up to 53 inches in length leaving a 1 inch wide hem at the sweep.
