1930's Red-Poppies Floral Applique Silk Tulle Illusion Flutter-Sleeve Deco Gown

About

A breathtaking "Woodward & Lothrop" designer floral garden silk-tulle gown from the Old Hollywood era of glamour. The bodice is an alluring low-cut plunge bias-cut illusion. I love the stylized draped flutter-sleeves! The waist is nipped with a lean long torso. This figure flattering garment accentuates the bust, skims the hips and flows beautifully. My favorite part is the floral appliques which really bring the garment to life. It is impeccably seamed and on the level of modern day couture. Here is a gown with attitude and elegant.

Measurements
Bust:43-44 inches
Waist:35 inches
Hips:46 inches
Total Length:60 inches

This antique designer two-piece dress is in excellent wearable condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working side metal-zipper. This gown is over 80 years old and is truly spectacular.
