"Cornflower & Coral" Vintage 1930's Black Satin Cornflower Blue & Coral Dress UK 8-12

This breathtaking 1930's black silk satin dress, with a floral print of cornflowers and roses in sweet gathered posies, is a rare piece to behold and never again find.

Her deep rounded V shaped neckline is framed by a sleeveless cut, and elegant angular seams along each yoke, that gather the silk in elegant pleats along the bust-line.
Her cinched in waistline, is accented by a point seam that runs from the waistline, and joins just below the bust-line.
Her Bias cut, skims the form, and creates an incredible drape to the silk satin, in a full circle cut skirt. Her square cut back line, is accented by a central gathered smocking panel, framed by the base of the shoulder straps joining the bodice.
A true masterpiece of her time, this incredible 1930's floral dress showcases the design and craftsmanship of the era.

Condition: This dress is in well loved vintage perfect condition.
A few very light age marks along the skirt, these are well concealed within the floral pattern.
A darn along the neckline to the first coral rose, and a small area of wear to the silk along the right hand side décolletage. A large darn below the left hand side bust, this has been done sympathetically and matches the colours and floral pattern. A darn below the left hand side bust seam, also done sympathetically in coral thread. There are small areas of rub wear to the silk satin throughout the dress.
These mends and darns are not overly apparent when the dress is being worn, and only noticeable under closer inspection. They have been done previously by a skilled seamstress who has managed to match the threads, and darn with somewhat of a floral pattern in mind.
This piece has been priced accordingly
