An extraordinarily stunning and exceptional 1930's black floral print liquid silk satin bias-cut gown. Old Hollywood glamour at it's finest! The bodice has the most flattering gathered side-panel design with chic 3/4-length sleeves that have a ruffle trim around the shoulder. This beautiful ruffle flows around the backside and the effect is sensational. The gown slips on with side metal snaps, hugging the body in just the right places. The piece work to create the tiered over skirt bias-cut construction that falls to the floor effortlessly is mind-blowing. This sophisticated dress conveys the alluring sensuality of 1930's silver screen starlets like Greta Garbo and Carole Lombard. It is also amazing that a gown with this amount of detail and presence can feel so comfortable but it does. So dramatic and rare.
