RARE LARGER SIZE (10-12) for 40s Gloria Swanson in Paris dress !
I bought this dress from a woman who purchased it from Gloria Swanson's neice; the neice got personal property, including all of the pieces in Gloria's personal wardrobe, including this dress. Gloria Swanson in Paris label. It features a white tafetta lining covered in a medium blue overlay. Curvy neckline features white tafetta trim around the two pieces at neckine in front; short sleeves. Defined waistline leads to a very swingy skirt portion that flares out to 360 degree circle at bottom. This could be worn with a crinoline underneath. There is a sturdy, easy to work metal zipper up the left side of dress. This dress is in excellent condition with two very minor flaws (1) There is a very faint spot on the BACK of the lining (doesn't show thru dress - only shows if you are going over lining w/ fine tooth comb) and (2) at very top of shoulder on right side there are 3 very small fingertip sized holes in netting between lace. There are several things that can be done to fix this - it is not noticeable unless someone is standing ABOVE you EYEBALLING the top of your shoulder; if you have long hair, that will cover it; if you sew, you can simply buy a very small piece of matching blue netting and insert it and stitch which I've been told is very simple solution, but I don't sew :( Otherwise excellent, clean and ready to wear. RESELLERS: wIth the quick easy netting insertions, you can definitely sell this for a lot more, especially on a model with a crinoline.
