A true beauty to behold. This original 1930's dress, rendered in a soft ballerina pink satin, showcasing the incredible pointed seam designs of the 1930's, is a timeless beauty to behold.
The V shaped cross over neckline of the dress, draws together above a concealed press stud fastening along the décolletage. The V shaped backline emulates the front of the dress, setting off the medium width shoulder straps and sleeveless cut. The elegant line of the fitted bias cut bodice, draws the eye to the pointed seam details beneath the waistline, which is also cut on the bias , which is accented by a matching pink satin waist belt. The wonderful rounded cut hemline of the skirt, flares out from below the pointed seams, creating wondrous drape to the satin, completing this dress in a timeless 1930's silhouette.
