"Silk Pinstripes" Vintage 1930's Silk Pinstriped Dress UK 12 US 8


This wonderful 1930's black silk dress, accented by a silk satin panel of pinstripes in shades of green, cream, pink and violet, is a wonderful statement piece to your wardrobe. 

The deep V shaped neckline is accented by satin pinstriped fabric along the nape, which joins the front of the bodice beneath the rounded black silk shoulder panels, and continues down the central panel of the dress. The elegant shoulder line is accented by pleated gathers along each sleeve seam, creating short length puffed sleeves. The fitted bodice is set off by gathered pleats along the rounded satin panel seam, creating elegant pleating beneath the bust-line. The cinched in waistline, sets off the elegant bias cut line of the skirt, which drapes along the silhouette. 

The dress fastens centrally with a metal zip fastening.
