Vintage 30s Floral Satin Gathered Bust Evening Gown

Vintage 30s watercolor floral print satin dress with sweetheart gathered bust, straps and buttons down the back.

The dress is a floral satin fabric, not sure if it is silk or not, but it feels very silky.  It's a nice medium weight, not sheer and not stretchy.  I did not steam the dress before photographing so it will need steaming when you receive it. Note, the fabric over all is wrinkly and might maintain that appearance even after a steam.

Condition:  See last image, the button fabric is darkened from use and age.  The fabric is in tact but darkened, zoom around so you can see.  I did not button all the buttons, they are all there, I just don't like to 'over-work' them if I don't have to. Rusty spots on the left bust that blend in with the busy print but they are there, so please do not order if this is an issue for you, see second to last image where I circled the rusty area. We have not attempted to clean the spot or the dress.

The dress is unlined and buttons down the back with fabric covered buttons.

I photographed the dress with lots of different accessories and vintage jewelry pieces.  This listing is for the dress only, please email me if interested in any of the bags, jewelry or crystal belt. The yellow crystal and cognac brooch shown in the 5th image is listed here.

Measurements:
Bust 33" laying flat (35" when working the tape measure around the bust to account for the fullness in the gathers).
Waist 28"
Hips free
Length 55" from top of strap to hem
Length 49" from top of bust to hem
