A dramatic, Morticia worthy 1930s dress, made of a splendid, fully embroidered rayon crepe. The curls of the glossy embroidery mimic the patterns we'd usually see stitched as soutache. The sleeves are full length and fitted, closing at the wrist with snaps. The neckline is a simple, perfectly flattering v shape. The bust is divided with five glittering rhinestone buttons - the top two of which are working, if you'd like to leave some undone, in a vampy 70s style. The cut is sleek and slim. The attached half-belt can be closed at front or at back. Finally, when the rayon ends, the fringe begins! This fringe was definitely added, but I can't say when. It's three tiers of quality braided rayon fringe, sewn to a celanese acetate lining. Overall, a sexy and lush 30s silhouette with the added attraction and movement of layers of fringe. It closes on the left side with snaps.

This dress is clean and ready to wear. The fringe, as noted, is not original. It's also not new, but I'm not sure when it was added - could be 40s, could be 60s (it's not that tacky 60s fringe, though.) There is a very narrow area of subtle fade at the left underarm. I find no other issues to note!
