Dramatic 1930s Devoré Velvet Gothic Evening Gown with Art Deco Burnout Sleeves
This gloriously Morticia black 1930s gown is truly a wicked treasure. This deadly creation is made of rayon velvet with a bias cut silhouette and devoré on the marvelous sleeves. The collar is framed with a self fabric ruffle. The sleeves are marvelous - a modified gigot shape, with sharp corners just past the elbow, coming to fitted cuffs. The radiating tear drop burnout is striking, flattering the shape of the sleeve. The skirt is sleekly bias cut and skims your curves snugly, falling long to the floor in a silhouette that is classically sexy. This has a belt loop, but no original belt and no side closure.
Hips: 37"-50" *recommend not getting to close to maxing this out, as it will significantly shorten the fit
Label: None Present
Material: Rayon Velvet
Condition: Good minus, flawed and repaired but wearable as is
This dress is clean, repaired and ready to wear. The devoré is not broken or weak. The issue that depresses the price of the dress is damage from what I can only image was a significant event - there's a 12" stitched cut down the left side (you can see this in photos) and to either side, there's three or four velvet patches. I've also backed the tear with some chiffon for security. There's a stitched hole just a bit lower as well. Because of the nature of black velvet, these don't stand out, and won't be noticed when worn, but you'll definitely find them when you turn it inside out or when getting dressed. The center of the bust also has some awkward hand stitches. This dress really does wear beautifully, but it is less than half what it would be in very good condition.
