INCREDIBLE 1940s GLORIA SWANSON PARIS label satiny black full circle skirt SWING dress! Amazing piece features black satiny fabric, slight 40's shoulder pads, 3/4 length sleeves to showcase your jewelry and/or gloves, ivory collar with rhinestone flowers, 360 degree full circle skirt with built in ultra light-silky crinoline with a few inches of netting for extra swing, covered buttons from waist to neck, side metal zipper and belt loops (nice to have to keep your belt in place should you wish to add one). This is a fabulous dress which would retail for over $100 in my retail store (and at least double in NY or LA) if not for a couple of unnoticeable, very minor, very easy to fix flaws (I don't sew): (1) there is a snap at neckline above top button (one side of snap is there, you can add the other side in a matter of minutes); (2) there is a 1" seam tear between top of side metal zipper and armpit (another 5 minute quick fix); (3) someone has done a shoddy 1.75" underarm repair directly next to the seam repair mentioned above ... they did a bad job and used blue thread. If someone takes a few extra minutes and black thread, this will be virtually unnoticeable - SEE PIX SO YOU CAN SEE HOW MINOR THIS IS.
So basically, with half an hour of TLC, a needle and thread, you can have an amazing 40s Gloria Swanson Paris swing dress for a very small fraction of retail.
