This is a gorgeous 1930's chiffon bias-cut dress with many
details. A vibrant royal blue color. The most noticeable aspect
of this dress is the skirt, which is completely ribbed. The
skirt is tailored to the dress on the bias with curved designs
at the hipline. The bodice also has tailoring under the bust
with points and gathers. The neckline is pulled together with
a shirred area that fans out in a gathered design. Caped sleeves.
Keyhole design closure at the back of the neck. Tailoring
on the back of the skirt is just one large curve where the
ribbed chiffon meets the plain chiffon. Side snap opening.
Unique Deco fabric covered belt, see close-ups for details.
Original bias-cut silk slip, of same royal blue color, flesh
colored straps. Condition: Unfortunately, the area where the
sleeves fan out has discoloration and one spot with a small
tear where someone tried to clean it (see close-ups). One
idea was to just remove this area from the dress, redo the
design of the sleeves. There are also a couple small light
spots randomly on the skirt and one small hole on the skirt,
which are not noticeable. The belt buckle has some wear. This
dress came in a group of designer 1930's gowns. There is no
tag, but the dress is professionally constructed. The other
dresses had tags reading, "Madelon, Paris, New York."
