Confidence During The Great Depression

Even with a slip or sheath beneath it, this vintage sheer black house dress requires confidence! More than simply being a sheer cloud of fabric, this vintage garment from the 1930s is tailored to fit and flatter all the curves of the female form — even adding a few more with those poofy little sleeves.

 Notice all that lovely lace work — as gossamer as spiderwebs! — along the bodice, on the sleeves, on the hem… Every thing is so sheer on this gown, from the seams to that prissy perfunctory bow at the neck, that I wonder if it feels like wearing anything… It must feel a bit like wearing the Emperor’s clothes. *wink* Did I mention it was sheer?
