This dress is absolutely divine!
Made in the 1930's from inky black crepe it is bias cut with a v shaped waist insert. The sleeves are the greatest feature of this incredible piece. Deeply slashed from the shoulder to almost the elbow, the fullness in the net and ribbon work design is so hard to show and is so much better in real life.
The whole piece is finished off perfectly with a jabot in the same material as the sleeves.
The dress has no side openings but because it is bias cut it isn't too hard to shimmy into it. However, to ensure this piece will fit you properly, please compare the measurements below to a similar piece you already own;
Flat bust 18" flat and 20" at full stretch
Flat waist 15" flat and 20" at full stretch
Flat hip 17" and 22" at full stretch
Underarm sleeve length 16"
Neck to waist 16"
Neck to hem 47"
Very good, only shows minor wear and the only faults to note are a few pinhead pulls/scuffs.
