"Orleans" Vintage 1930's Pale Blue Crepe Silk Button Back Gown

This original 1930's crepe silk dress in the most delicate shade of pale is the perfect piece for your vintage wardrobe.

Her v shaped neckline is framed on either side with 2 decorative bows with pale pink centres. Her short pleated puff sleeves, set off the pleating under the bust line, while drawing the eye to the pointed central panel along the waistline, that cinches the waist in. The draped skirt, completes this wonderful dress, in true 1930's fashion, as it trails down the female form.
The beautiful mock button fastenings and double pointed panel along the back of the dress, showcase the exquisite design of the era.
