"Lattice Ribbons" Vintage Late 1930's Black Crepe Silk And Ribbon Dress UK 10

This original late 1930's dress, made in the most sumptuous black crepe silk, with deep aubergine silk satin accents, is the perfect piece for your vintage wardrobe.

Her V shaped neckline is framed by deep aubergine silk satin strands of ribbon, that contour the neckline, and join together in a simple stitch, that then radiates the strands of ribbon outwards along the fitted bust-line. Her short sleeves are accented by shoulder pads sewn in along each shoulder seam, and trimmed along the cuffs with matching silk ribbon. Her cinched in waistline is accented by a pointed under bust seam, that draws the eye to the waist. Her iconic 1930's skirt, sets off the silhouette and timeless elegance of the era.
