"Stardust" Vintage 1930's Oyster Silk Satin Rhinestone Embellished Bias Cut Gown UK 10-14

This breathtaking 1930's Oyster coloured silk satin bias cut evening dress, is a rare piece to behold and never again find.

Her high rounded neckline, is framed by thin satin shoulder straps, that contour the front and back of the neckline, and act as a base to the construction, to which the dress is looped around. Her neckline is decorated with a panel of chiffon silk, embellished with trailing gun metal glass coloured beads, on gold toned base thread, and sparkling claw set rhinestones. The neckline panel is threaded along the satin strap, creating beautiful gathers in the silk chiffon, that drape in pleats along the bust-line, and bodice. Her elegant fitted bodice, is accented by the bias cut, that joins the cinched in waistline in a pointed central seam.
The bias cut of the skirt, drapes elegantly along the female form, and boasts elegant radiating seam work, an iconic art deco feature of the 1930's.
The incredible backline of the dress, is accented by silk chiffon embellished strip panels, that loop along the satin shoulder strap, and drape loosely along the back of the dress, joining the elegant bias cut, in an almost cowl style backline.
