1930's Couture Rhinestone Studded Plum Crepe Winged Sleeve Bias-Cut Deco Gown

About

A breathtaking 1930's couture custom-made plum purple silk crepe gown from the Old Hollywood era of glamour. There is so much detail, you can tell this masterpiece was created with love and care. The bodice has a seductive sculpted plunge with asymmtric deco adornment. I love the sparking rhinestone workmanship which really gives the garment so much depth and texture. Just look at those dramatic winged open sleeves. This gorgeous bias-cut design flows into a unique back draped construction. This figure flattering garment accentuates the bust, skims the hip and flares out below the knee with impressive invert middle pleating. It is impeccably seamed and on the level of modern day couture. Measurements Bust:38-40 inches Waist:up to 32 inches Hips:up to 42 inches Total Length:57 inches This custom-made labeled couture evening gown is in excellent wearable condition with no rips, stains or holes. Only signs of age are two missing diamantes and a few small pulls. This dress is well over 80 years old and is truly spectacular. Garment slips over the head with no additional closures. I wouldn't be surprised if this creation was by a famous designer, as it has all the hallmarks of a couture piece from this era. True wearable fashion history.
