Description

A romantic vintage 1930s gown, made of a liquid, gleaming rayon charmeuse - a light catching creation that drips with Old Hollywood glamour. The pale lavender color lends it a soft, ethereal quality. Entirely bias cut, this piece drapes perfectly against the body, skimming lightly over your curves from neck to hem . At the back, an arrow insets flares to create the elegant train, not overstated, just enough for dripping elegance as you walk down the stairs. At back , there are two button holes at the top to close a wide, open slit back. I presume this originally had two buttons connected with a short chain, and I'm afraid I don't have a replacement. I find a dress clip or satin ribbon both work well, and this will be sent with satin ties. You can close it fully as shown, or, with a ribbon or linked buttons, let it drape open.

✂-----Measurements

This beauty draped well on the 35" bust form at both the bust and hips, but the waist is a little large for the modern 6.

Bust: Measures 37.5" relaxed to a maximum 42".
Waist: 28" relaxed to 32"
Hips: 36"- 42"
Length: 55" at front, 64" to end of train

Label: H. Liebes & Co
Material: Rayon Satin
Condition: Good plus to VG minus

This dress is clean and ready to wear - I have both dry cleaned it, and very, very gently hand laundered it. There is a very, very subtle water line on the left side of the bodice - light reflexting hides this so it's nearly impossible to photograph and won't stand out when worn. See last photo. There are two little water spots lower on the skirt caused by my steamer after its final bath, and those will clean away when you dry clean it. I find no other issues to note.
