SUMMER ART DECO GODDESS
WEARABLE ART ~ UNIQUE & ONE OFF
♥ DESCRIPTION: A ONE OF A KIND and such a rare find ~ especially in this immaculate mint condition...exquisitely STUNNING light, soft crepe, original vintage 1930s, bias cut, maxi wedding/evening dress or ballgown in the most beautiful summery floral print ~ with such elegant & beautiful styling and fabulous tailoring ~ and with so many delightful touches which make this dress THE MOST divine you could ever imagine!
Featuring a loosely gathered/draped v-neckline ~ unusual oblong fabric covered 'ring' just below the neckline, which serves to gather the floral crepe fabric so that bust area is given a lovely shape and very pretty neckline is created ~ curved seaming over the bust ~ and arched seaming over the top of the hips ~ this seaming drops down into a point below the waist enhancing the beautiful, body-skimming, hour-glass, bias cut silhouette ~ very lovely long, floaty silky crepe skirt which skims the hips and flares out towards the hemline, quite fishtail in appearance, and very flattering ~ there is a short split vent at front hem for easy of movement, and show you can show off pretty shoes! ~ The sleeves are beautifully made ~ lightly padded/stiffened short sleeves, which cap the top of the shoulder & top of the arm in a very structured and beautifully flattering way. ~
The back of this dress is just so stunning also ~ with a very long row of floral crepe covered buttons down the center for fastening through divine little loops ~ waist seam concealed by a matching floral crepe waist sash, which reaches around to the back & ties in a bow, and which helps with getting a perfect fit ~ & the beautiful, flowing, long skirt, which drapes down into a small train at the back, which just skims the floor ~ this small train is often seen in dresses in films from the Golden Age of 1930s Old Hollywood...DIVINE!!!!
Lovely to wear as a guest at a special wedding ~ and ABSOLUTELY ideal for your wedding day, as a bridal dress...beyond beautiful ~ or a bridesmaid's dress ~ would be perfect for a 1920s/30s or even 40s themed wedding...or for any event or occasion when you want to look like a HOLLYWOOD GODDESS! Very red carpet glamour...& so incredibly unusual in this fabulous floral print!!
There is no fabric label ~ fabric looks & feels like a very high quality crepe, perhaps silk crepe ~ it is so soft & light & floaty which feels amazing against your skin and moves beautifully as you move, walk, dance...
Mint condition in every way ~ absolutely stunning condition for nearly 100 years old!!!

Hips ~ approx: UP TO 18 - 19" ~ maybe a bit more due to the bias cut. This is a bias cut dress which is a very forgiving style size wise and will stretch in the tailoring to accommodate, so you might get a little bit more room if you need it.
