Beautiful romantic 30s gown has embroidered lace trim throughout the bodice and edges of sleeves. Deep V neckline, smocking at shoulders and gently flowing skirt.
The dress is unlined and snaps on one side. These side-snap dresses can be tricky to put on, you have to wriggle into them. The waist is so small it would not fit on my mannequin so I photographed this beauty on a hanger. See measurements below.
I believe the fabric is rayon crepe.
Condition is excellent structurally and the lace is in beautiful condition, but has other issues, namely staining/discoloration under both arms and spotting on the skirt. I point out these issues in the last few photos.
Photography note, it looks like there's a pink cast to the skirt, that is not present on the actual dress, some pinkish light is reflecting onto the skirt in the images. The skirt is an ecru color.
Priced for condition - FINAL SALE
XXS - it might be difficult to put on due to the side snap closures, you may have to wriggle into it.
Bust 33" when 'stretching' it out, but there is some additional room due to the deep V neckline and small gathers in the bodice. There is no stretch to the fabric.
Waist 24" this is the tiny part of the gown
