1930's Elegant Heavily-Beaded White Satin Bias-Cut Larger Size Evening Gown

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

An ethereal crisp-white shimmer silk-satin gown from the "Old Hollywood" era of glamour. The bodice is a low-cut plunge with sparkling rhinestone-studded duel shoulder straps. The waist is nipped with a stylized middle ruching. The lower skirt is constructed with a back pleated insert and scalloped hemline; insanely hard to do on bias-cut fabric. This figure flattering garment accentuates the bust, skims the hip and flares out below the knee in an hourglass shape. It is impeccably seamed and on the level of modern day couture. Here is a dress with attitude and elegant.

Measurements
Bust:41-42 inches
