1930's Bias Cut Black Silk Satin Evening Gown with Ruffled Back

$675

About

This very sexy black bias cut satin dress is trimmed with wide bands of the same satin edging the neckline and criss crossing at the center front. The bands widen and wrap over the hips to terminate at the center back ruffle and drape. The arm holes are also edged in the same way, creating a peek-a-boo opening on either side of the center front bodice. These bands then wrap around to the top of the ruffled decoration at the back. This conceals a series of snaps and hooks and eyes, all on the bias, concealed underneath the ruffle. The dress has a slight train in back for added interest. I is in good, but not perfect condition. The original owner must have worn a pin or corsage on the left side of the bodice and this has left a bruise on the fabric. The simple solution is to wear a pin or a gardenia in the same location. There are no labels inside the dress so please check the measurements carefully. Measurements; Bust 34" Waist 30" Hips 40" Length 59" shoulder to hem
