Vintage 1930s Bias Cut Floral Lamé Dress

About

This beautiful bias cut 1930's silk slip dress with spaghetti straps is a rare find and in very good vintage condition, having retained all of its shimmer and vibrancy. The silk fabric is textured with embroidered gold lamé thread to create a delicate rose design over the abstracted floral surface print in an explosion of copper, sage green and champagne tones over black. The fluted neckline is a shallow curve which cuts a modest line above the bust and scoops lower at the reverse to reveal the upper back and shoulders. The bodice is gently tailored with pinch details on either side both below the bust and on the reverse level with the waistline. The bias cut of the fabric helps to direct the elegant line of the piece, which rides effortlessly over the hips into a glamorous floor length skirt. Asymmetrical panels of additional fabric have been incorporated into the lengthly hem to inspire a subtle fish tail flare from the calf. The reverse of the dress features decorative seams which graduate from the either side of the hem to a central point above the thighs. There are a series of concealed hook and eye closures which run the length of the left side as far as the hip. This show stopping piece just a small amount of fraying to the straps which has been very well repaired; would fir up to a US size 6, UK size 10.
