1930's Green Black Floral Print Lace Chiffon Bias-Cut Gown & Bell-Sleeve Jacket
The breathtaking large-scale green black floral garden deco print used on this 1930's lace and silk-chiffon gown ensemble has a timeless allure that I find irresistible. The bodice is a low plunge cowl-neck sleeveless. The elegant blousy waist falls into a sculpted bias-cut, where it breaks into sculpted panels. The piece work to create the skirting in particular is quite extraordinary. The stylized charm of the semi-sheer, tie-front jacket personify the feminine ideal in clothing. Just look at those dramatic bell-sleeves! This figure flattering garment accentuates the bust, skims the hip and flares out in classic "Old Hollywood" style. It is very rare to find ensembles that, through time, stay together.
