This breathtaking 1930's silk chiffon rose print dress in a palette of blush, reds, yellows and greens set against a black base, is a rare piece to behold.
The V shaped neckline is framed by a small turned down collar and central decorative green floral painted button fastenings. The simple shoulder line is accented by a rounded seam that runs from each shoulder and sleeve seam across the yokes. The short length sleeves boast central gathered seams that create detailed ruching and set off the pointed undersides of each cuff. The elegant bodice is accented by delicate pleats that drape along the bust-line from the rounded yoke seam. The cinched in waistline, sets off the elegant drape of the skirt, which is cut on the bias and in panels, completing this dress in an iconic 1930's silhouette.
This dress is sheer and will need to be worn with a dress slip to conceal ones modesty.
We have included a black 1930's slip within this listing.
