Gorgeous antique dress, circa 1930s. Constructed of sumptuous silk in moss green with exquisite movement and drape. Mossy-olive green ground with floral print in purples, blues, and pinks; the print is variegated in shade, somewhat like a watercolor or dappled sunlight, and verging on abstract. Pieced bodice; pleated-shoulder sleeves; short, V-shaped collar reminiscent of a cheongsam; graceful, slightly a-line skirt. Zips up the side with a metal zipper, and fastens at the back of the neck with 12 petite silk-covered buttons. An exceptionally beautiful historic garment.

Measurements, taken lying flat and doubled where appropriate, are approximately:

Bust: 34"
Waist: 25"
Hip: 35-36"
Shoulder: 13"
Sleeve length: 10"
Bodice length: 15.5"
Dress length: 44.5"

The dress is in good condition for its age and is very wearable. There is light discoloration to the silk under the arms, which causes the fabric to appear slightly more pink there; it is not very noticeable and would be even less so when worn. There are also two stitched repairs (pictured) to one underarm. I have tested the fabric here for strength and signs of shattering, but the silk feels quite strong. There is also a repair to the V of the collar (pictured), and a pair of tiny pinholes on the front bodice. The dress is clean and ready to wear.
