Gorgeous silk velvet 1930s dress.

✧ handmade in the 30s -- one of a kind!
✧ deep burgundy silk velvet with a luxurious sheen
✧ removable vibrant turquoise + green wired flower corsage pin
✧ high cowl neckline + peephole at the nape of neck
✧ fitted through hips + waist with blousey top
✧ puff sleeves with little pads for shape
✧ gored skirt for shape + swing
✧ fastens up the side with hidden snaps

This lovely dress is a 1930s silk velvet dream! Oh so perfect for a birthday fête, a Valentine's day treat, or for any other especially special event. Dress it up with a pair of sky high heels and a little lace slip, or remove the flower pin and pair it with flats and a little belt for a day trip into town. A luxurious fabric in an even more luxurious color that will leave you feeling like a real lady every time you slip it on. Just marvelous!!

This dress was handmade over 70 years ago -- it is truly a treasure and one of a kind! There is not another one like it in all the world!!

Excellent vintage condition with no stains, tears, or holes. There is one mend close to the peephole in the back that was done well and looks more or less like a seam, and there are a couple of places where the velvet appears to be just slightly shinier. These things are barely noticeable, as they blend in well to the dark color and sheen of the fabric. Just gorgeous!
