"Violet" Vintage 1930's Violet Silk Georgette Dress UK 10

This original 1930's silk georgette dress, in the most vibrant shade of violet, is the perfect piece for any special occasion.

Her V shaped neckline is framed by elegant shoulder straps, and small covered button fastenings along the décolletage. Her decorative seam work along the bust line, creates radiating lines, that set off the fitted bodice. Her elegant cut, is accented by a flowing skirt, with a front pleated panel, that adds movement and width to the hemline. Her simple backline boasts a similar pleated panel that falls from the base of the back, creating an eye catching detail, while creating an iconic 1930's silhouette.

This dress is sheer, and will need to be worn with a dress slip.
