"Jardin Monochrome" Vintage 1930's Silk Monochrome Floral Print Tiered Dress UK 6-8 US 2-4

This truly magnificent 1930's silk dress, in a monochrome palette, with a black base background colour accented by a trailing floral pattern, in a canton embroidery style, is a rare piece to behold and never again find.

Her straight cut neckline is framed by wide shoulder straps, which are edged with a border floral pattern, which is also found along the front of the neckline. Her fitted bodice, sets off the cinched in waistline.
Her elegant skirt, boasts two tiers. The top straight cut tier, sits above the silk lining of the dress, which in turn connects to the second tier of the dress.
The second tier is cut on the bias, creating drape along the lower part of the skirt, completing the silhouette of this dress in true 1930's fashion.
The back of the dress boasts a central panel that runs along the length of the dress, connecting the tiers.
This dress is lined in silk up to the end of the first tier of the dress.
