The breathtaking watercolor print used on this 1930's silk rayon gown has a fresh innocence that I find irresistible. The rich chartreuse, magenta and light blue floral work beautifully with the dark navy background. The bodice has elegant short flutter sleeves and a seductive weighted back drape. The sculpted waist falls into an hourglass bias-cut, where it breaks into a back mermaid panel design. The piece work to create the skirting in particular is extraordinary. It is amazing that a dress with this amount of detail and presence can literally feel almost weightless but it does. So romance and rare.

Measurements (varies due to bias-cut)
Bust: 32-35 inches
Waist: 24-27 inches
Hips: up to 38 inches
Total Length: 58 inches

This 1930's custom gown is in excellent wearable condition with no noticeable rips, holes or fade. Perfectly working side metal-snaps. Only sign of wear are some faint spots throughout which are really hard to notice due to the vibrant print. Please message for detailed pictures. This garment is over 80 years old and is truly stunning.
