1930's Elegant Metallic Royal-Purple Lame & Velvet Bias-Cut Deco Evening Gown

About

A luxurious royal-purple shimmer lame gown from the "Old Hollywood" era of glamour. The bodice is a low-cut slight cap-sleeve with a plunging backside. The waist is nipped with a stylized silk-velvet sash. The lower skirt is added in pointed inset seamed pieces typical of the time period and insanely hard to do on bias-cut fabric. This figure flattering garment accentuates the bust, skims the hip and flares out below the knee with beautiful back duel-trains. It is impeccably seamed and on the level of modern day couture. Here is a gown with attitude and elegant. Measurements Bust:34-35 inches Waist:28 inches Hips:37 inches Total Length:62 inches This antique "Registered Designer with the Fashion Originators Guild" evening dress is in excellent wearable condition with no rips,stains or holes. After close inspection, I found some faint tarnished-lame to the skirt which is not noticeable when worn. This gown is over 80 years old and is truly spectacular.
