1930's Metallic Gold Studded Red Crepe Long-Sleeve Draped Couture Gown

About

A breathtaking late 1930's "Florence M. Schmeltzer" couture custom-made ruby-red 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 chic slightly-padded shoulders and lean, long sleeves. I love the metallic-gold studded work which really gives the garment so much depth and texture. This gorgeous design flows into a flattering gathered sash waist. This unique garment skims the hip and flares out with impressive length and skirting. It is impeccably seamed and on the level of modern day couture. Measurements Bust:35-36 inches Waist:up to 26 inches Hips:up to 40 inches Sleeve Length:26 inches Total Length:60 inches This Florence M. Schmeltzer couture custom-made evening gown is in excellent wearable condition with no rips, holes or alterations. Perfectly working side metal-zipper. Only signs of age are some surface dark marks by the hemline and slight discolor by the underarm hem. This dress is well over 80 years old and is truly spectacular. True wearable fashion history.
