This wonderful evening dress was made in the 1930's.
Made from cotton velvet it has a close fitting bodice with a sweetheart neckline and 'V' shaped waist detail. It features 13 decorative covered buttons down the front, a ruched patch pocket and wide belt ties which tie in the back in a large bow. It fastens down the left side with teeny poppers and a single hook and eye.
A classic piece which is perfect for an evening dance.
