1930s celadon colored dress with amazing details. Celadon colored rayon crepe featuring HUGE balloon sleeves accented with big lace panels and smocked shoulders. Wide draped sash extends from waist around neck. Peplum with angled classic 30s self-fabric decorative buttons on left hip. High neck with buttons up the back nape. Kick pleats on the back sides of skirt. Side snap closure. The draping on this dress is just phenomenal - it's a complete goddess dress! Incredible!!

Condition: This dress has several minor issues and is being sold AS IS. Most flaws are only noticeable in bright light. Has some underarm staining (see last photo) -though due to the huge billowing sleeves they would be very rarely if ever visible. Some fading, especially on the sleeves, back of the shoulders, and sides of skirt. Not marked, no sharp fade lines, but still there. Some very small (mostly pinhead size) spots and nicks, two small holes 1/8" on left hip. Some of the fabric on the buttons at the back of the neck has been rubbed away (see 4th photo). Some light brownish small areas of discoloration on the lace on the sleeves. One 1/4" faint line mark on right sleeve. Some extremely faint brownish marks on back of shoulders/neck Convo me for more photos. Overall this is a very wearable, stunning dress with amazing details that more than make up for these flaws, still, price reflects.
