This early 30s crepe-backed satin dress is deco divinity but it is also under distress, so it is being sold AS IS at a reduced price. The rhinestone detailing on the front and back shoulders are exquisite and "harvestable" (though some are missing) but I think it would be too risky to actually wear this garment out for a night on the town because of the following: 1) I see several rather awkwardly done attempts to reinforce seams--this tells me there has been (and may likely still be) thread disintegration, such as down the front left seam; there is also a square shaped primitive period repair at front bottom hem; 3) my biggest concern is that there is an early sign of fabric disintegration in the form of a front abrased area that is turning to a hole and smaller thinned spots/pinholes visible when fabric held up to light). All in all, I think this beauty has potential as a piece to be used for study, display, reworking, etc. Still, it is sold as a final sale with no refunds, exchanges, or in-shop credit, so please ask all questions and request any extra photos BEFORE purchase. Thank you!
