"Summer Devoré" Vintage 1930's Navy Bue Silk Chiffon & Floral Devoré Dress UK 12 US 8

This breathtaking 1930's navy blue silk chiffon dress with a pattern of floral devoré blossoms in shades of pink, navy, fuchsia and mustard, is a rare piece to behold and never again find.

The V shaped neckline is accented by a cross over cut along the bust-line, that gathers in small pleats along the bust seam, that radiate along each side of the décolletage. Her full length bishops sleeves are edged with cuffs, adorned with button and loop fastenings. Her elegant bodice, cinches in along the back of the dress with a matching fabric bow fastening, that draws the waistline in.
Her draped skirt, features small gathers and pleats along the curved seams that contour the hips and front of the skirt, completing this piece in true 1930's fashion.
This dress is slightly sheer and may need to be worn with a slip to conceal ones modesty.
