"Matelassé & Lamé" Vintage 1930's Blue & Silver Silk Matelassé & Lamé Dress UK 10-12 US 6-8

This breathtaking 1930's blue silk & silver lamé matelassé dress, in an opulent floral pattern, is a rare piece to behold and never again find.

Her V shaped neckline is framed by wide shoulder straps, that gather to the front of the yokes beneath matching silk lamé loops, in a Grecian style, creating gathers and pleats that drape along the bust-line. Her fitted bodice is accented by a pointed seam beneath the bust, that radiates gathered pleats along the bust, and sets off the waistline, drawn in by a matching pleated belt, that fastens to the back of the dress with hook and eyes. The back of the waistline features and elegant seam, from which the central part of the skirt is pleated from, creating an elegant pleated drape to the back of the skirt.
Her elegant 1930's silhouette, boasts a simple bias cut, that skims the silhouette, into a draping hemline.
