2S082 : 1930's Royal Blue Chiffon Gown
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." $155
