The ethereal blue floral garden deco print used on this 1930's semi-sheer silk chiffon gown ensemble has a fresh innocence that I find irresistible. This stunning set also happens to be a larger size which is getting harder to come by. The dress bodice has an chic optional front tie with a unique capelet-sleeve design. The elaborate rhinestone trimmed belt falls into an hourglass full length bias-cut silhouette. The piece work to create the skirting in particular is extraordinary. The stylized charm of the smocked, winged-sleeve bolero jacket personify the feminine ideal in clothing. We added many pictures so you could understand this masterful achievement. It is amazing that an ensemble 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: 40-44 inches

This antique 1930's floral silk-chiffon gown set is in excellent wearable condition with no noticeable rips, holes or fade. Presents beautifully. Perfectly working side metal-snaps. This ensemble is over 80 years old and is truly breathtaking.
