A great taffeta evening dress from circa 1933 - 35. Perfect for parties and balls.

This dress certainly has the Letty Lynton influence with gathered and shirred ruffles forming the collar and sleeves. The pintucked panel down the front of the bodice with the buttons floats free before being caught into the curved under bust seam.The skirt falls straight on the bias to a below knee length ruffle which forms the bottom of the skirt.

Made of what I think is a rayon taffeta, this gown is a true bright pink. Whilst Shocking Pink was a popular late 1930s colour, it is slightly more unusual to find this colour used earlier in the decade. The close up of the hem is the closest to the real colour, which I had problems capturing in the photos.

No side openings. Closes at back of neck with a single pearlised button. There is one tiny 1/8" hole at the back of the hem, shown in picture 4. Otherwise this dress is in very good and sturdy condition. No labels, but a manufactured, not homemade dress.

Size: About a UK 10-12 /US 6 - 8
Measurements:
Bust: 38"
Waist:30"
Hip: about 36" unstretched but will go larger
Length: Unstretched 56" in front and 59" at the back where it dips into a slight train.

Shown with black belt which is not included. I have worn this dress with silver and black accessories on separate occasions, but being one solid colour, you could wear it with many different colours.
