There are lots of lovely 1930's garments still around, but every once in a while I come across one that sets my heart a flutter! This is an extraordinarily beautiful black silk and fine chantilly-lace sculpted full length showstopper. Old Hollywood glamour at it's finest. The bodice has elegant flutter cap-sleeves and a unique asymmetric slash insert with smaller cut-outs throughout. The design is so ahead of it's time! The nipped waist falls into an hourglass bias-cut trained design. The piece work to create this garment with the softest silk is truly extraordinary. I love the two-tone velvet back sash bow which really look sensational when you turn around. Dramatic gowns from the 1930's era remain a perennial favorite, perhaps because no other period combined opulence with such youthful playfulness. The pictures say it all.
Measurements (varies due to bias-cut) Bust: 30-32 inches Waist: 24-26 inches Hips: up to 35 inches Total Length: 60 inches (not including 8-inch train)
