DESCRIPTION: This dress hails from the hallowed halls of Jean Harlow, Joan Crawford, Carole Lombarde, Claudette Colbert...

Cut on the bias and ruffles fluttering on the bodice, the silk velvet shimmers and glides on the body as it's worn.   There are 3 snap closures at the waistline.  No zipper, no buttons.  It's the kind you 'slink' over your head very carefully.  There is also some kind of mesh lining at the sleeves. I assume it's there to help with the structure of the sleeves. 

Prepare to turn heads and break hearts in this gown. I imagine the lovely woman who wore this dress the first time most certainly did. 


Bust: 38"
Waist:  29" (measured 15" down from shoulder)
Hips: 33" (measured 23" from shoulder)
Shoulder to shoulder: 16.5" 
Length (Shoulder to Waist): 15"
Total Length: 57"

MODEL INFO: Height: 5’5”, Bust: 33”, Waist: 25.5”, Hips: Hips: 36” / Size (2-4)


There is a 1' oblong spot of some kind at the hem.  It looks to us to be of a rust nature.  It is part of the gown, but doesn't detract from the functionality or overall appearance of the gown.   There is also one tear to the inside mesh of one of the sleeves, but because it's mesh, we can't have it repaired. 

The price reflects both of these things.
