Vintage 1930s Black Silk Velvet Gown with Striped Bodice, Small

Vintage 1930s Black Silk Velvet Gown with Striped Bodice, Small

This is an absolutely stunning luxe-feel black silk velvet 30s evening gown with striped bodice. It has short sleeves and a little V neckline with reveres. The skirt is floor length coming from a natural waist. There are shoulder pads attached. It is unlined. Metal zipper down centre back. We just can't get over how nice the fabric feels!

COLOUR: Black with blue, red and green stripes. 


LABEL: Town & Country Shop, Chicago 

CONDITION: Unfortunately this beauty has some significant issues at the shoulders and sleeves. One thought we had was to remove the sleeves and recut the neckline, making new shoulder straps or panels. There's also two small holes below the back waistline. The rest is not bad but there are some signs of weakness in areas of the skirt when the light catches them. 

Bust: 36 in. (91.5 cm)
Waist: 26 in. (66 cm)
Hip: 39 in. (99 cm)
Length: 63.5 in. (161 cm)
