Gorgeous Ivory Dead stock design from the 1930s or pre WWII 1940's in radiant silk charmeuse, its simple styling is both elegant and classic and will exquisitely molds to your curves. The details on this lovely gown make it a perfect fit for a Spring or Summer wedding. From the collection of a 1930's Russian Ballerina family friend, never worn in its original packaging.

Dress features:
Amazing Silk charmeuse – a fabric typical of the best silks of the 30s and in a lingerie-weight silk that is near-impossible to find these days
Floor length skirt is bias cut for stunning drape
Meticulously constructed for a perfectly draped fit
Hand embroidered bodice and sleeve in a lovely floral design
Bias cut with some give

Marked 34’’
Bust: 34-measures up to 38.5’’
Waist: 32’’ (with tie to accommodate smaller waist)
Skirt: 45’’
Length: 58’’

Condition: Dead stock, never worn. The fabric is in amazing condition, soft and supple, and the construction is lovely.

Minor flaws: A speckling of small (1/2’’ - 1/16’’) faint rust colored water marks in a few areas on the bust mesh and embroidery, skirt, and strap backs. Marks due to age and storage. Likely launder able and detectable only under a scrupulous inspection in direct light.

Ships Priority US. Will ship internationally - 1st Class, Priority (upon request).

**** Please let me know if you've just got to add this to your Spring and Summer wardrobe and I can work with you to make it yours. I love lay-away and will reserve for serious buyers.
