Vintage 1920s - 1930s Bias Cut Evening Gown / Black Silk Satin Georgette


Stunning vintage dress from the late 1920s to very early 1930s. It is made of silk with alternating satin and georgette stripes. Deep v-neck in front, ruched shoulders and handkerchief cuffs with rhinestone buttons. There is an attached satin belt which is sewn at the hips, then drops in front for a drop waist appearance. It has a rhinestone buckle. The belt is permanently sewn and decorative, not adjustable. Below the waist the dress is gored with panels of fabric which are weighted to maintain the drape. There is a matching vest. Both pieces are not lined. They are exquisitely stitched and all seam finishing done by hand. In excellent condition, the only issue to be found are two tiny nicks in the fabric of one skirt panel, see them pointed out with red arrows on the last photo.

No tags. This was custom made. This dress is meant to fit fairly loose, and the neckline is deep enough that it should be worn with an under dress/slip. Please refer to the measurements listed below, taken while laying flat and doubled where appropriate.
