Description

A stunning 1930s evening dress that is just so evocative of the era.

Made from black rayon crepon with a print off white flowers and eau de nil foliage.

The modesty panel is a vibrant eau de nil silk georgette covered in a more subdued lace.

The dress has large collars with scalloped edge and a row of tiny covered buttons begin just above the waist.

The skirts are constructed from intricately cut and positioned gores.

Condition is excellent with a couple of points to note.

There are some light marks on the lace, I have not attempted to remove.

A couple of tiny rust marks on close inspection.

Below the centre triangular gore in the skirt is a horizontal line. I couldn't figure it out, as the fabric on the inside that the dart created is not damaged. I then noticed a tiny rust mark on the outside (tiny tiny). The dart was put in to conceal this mark which if the dart was unpicked would be around the size of a five pence piece, possibly smaller. A strange thing to do I thought, but I guess rather effective.

There is a dressmakers label inside. RETEX I think.

Laid flat measurements

20 inches across the waist, the waist sits slightly lower than your natural waist

20.5 inches pit to pit

23.5 inches across the hips

15 inches across the shoulders

18 inches shoulder to waist

55.5 inches shoulder to hem

The dress is structurally very strong, this is a stand out piece.
