1930's Elegant Black Silk & Ivory Satin Poet-Sleeves Day Dress


Beautiful 1930 custom-made sculpted day-dress fashioned in the a "light as a feather" black silk-rayon. I love the dramatic bib-collar and beautiful ecru chantilly-lace detailing. The sleeves are so unique; a flutter poet-style with little snaps on each cuff. It is amazing that a dress with this much presence can literally feel almost weightless but it does! The entire dress floats and moves with the barest of movement. The back tie-belt finishes this garment off with a beautiful silhouette. A truly stunning dress and a wonderful example of the textiles from this era.

This antique dress is in excellent wearable condition with no visible rips,stains or holes. This piece is over 80 years old and is truly spectacular.
