Vintage 1930s gown, a silk treasure with a bold macro-floral that features a pale chartruese, fuchsia and black. Beige and ivory mix together. This beauty ties at the shoulders, and has a simple neckline, draped with a suspended weight. At back, the excess material drapes i soft, low folds. The gown is generous on top, partly due to the style, and slimmer through the hips (oh, 30s.) The skirt clings close and then pointed insets falls in soft folds - it's incredibly flattering. This dress slips over the head and has no closures.
Hips: 34" - 40"
Label: None Present
Condition: Good, as is
This dress is clean and ready to wear. There is a little mild staining at the underarms, and one has a small repaired split, the other has tiny, speckled holes. I have interfaced with both with a lightweight iron-on interfacing - never my first choice for repair but the best for this case. The beige and ivory areas have tanned a bit over time. There are a couple spots by the hem, and held to the light, I found two teen moth chews in the mid area of the skirt. There are some scattered light spots in the skirt and mild occasional foxing throughout - the flaws don't stand out in this brilliant print. The last and final flaw is that a previous owner shirred the back unprofessionally, and I painstakingly pulled it out to drape well again. There are two tiny holes hidden in that draping. I find nothing else to note. It has been priced with imperfections in mind.
