Vintage 1930s Dress / Bias Cut Dress Black Velvet Gown
Lovely vintage 1930s dress in bias cut black rayon velvet. Full sleeves gathered cuffs and ruched detail around the arm/shoulder. Slight fishtail shape to the back of the dress gives it a lovely drape. Slips on over the head, no openings or zippers. This dress is not lined. It is in very good condition, no holes or tears, a few small areas where the velvet may be thin near the hem.
