1930's Spring Floral Print Silk Chiffon Tea Dress


The colors of this gossamer silk printed chiffon tea dress are stunningly ethereal and of a bygone era. The watercolor pattern is reminiscent of a french wallpaper. Flounced sleeves and bias inserts throughout create romantic drama. A beautiful long sash ties in the back, adding an elegant silhouette. This is the most famous style of tea dress for 1930's silk chiffon. A must for the serious collector. Fits a US Size 2 or a 4 with a petite bust.
