"Amandine" Vintage 1930's Crepe Silk Polkadot Dress UK 10

This original 1930's dress, made in the most sumptuous shade of orange crepe silk, with contrasting silk polkadot accents in shades of brown, green, and orange, is the perfect piece for your vintage wardrobe.

Her high neckline is framed by a mock silk neck scarf that falls in a cowl cut in vibrant contrasting polkadot silk fabric. Her mid length sleeves, are set off by turned up cuffs, that match the polkadot silk neckline, and boast rows of stitching, finished by a press stud fastening along each cuff point. Her fitted bodice is set off by an upward pointed seam and a mock in-built loose jacket, with matching polkadot silk lapels, and stitches that mimic those along the cuffed sleeves.
Her cinched in waistline is drawn in by a silk polkadot waist tie, that loops around the front of the dress and fastens in a elegant side bow.
The bias cut of the skirt skims the figure and falls into an iconic 1930's cut skirt.
