1930s Tissue Silk Gown


*please do not purchase, on layaway, thank you*

Beautiful deco gown in fine tissue silk, the dress is lined with a fine layer of silk beneath the print and ruffles which extend across the seat and down the sides, these move so wonderfully when you walk! Slim skirt, fitted through the waist with matching tie to cinch. At some stage a modern, nylon zipper was added to the side (a few seams may also have been re-sewn, perhaps the dress was worn in more recent history also), the modern zipper does make the dress a little easier to secure and adds a sturdiness which is always welcome with these fine silk pieces in my opinion! The dress is in great condition and appears to be very well taken care of, very small amount of smudging at the hem, minor, a few tiny pulls in the silk only visible if very closely inspecting. A beautiful piece indeed!
