SOLD -- Late 1930s Midnight Blue Floral Silk Chiffon Garden Party Dress with Attached Capelet
This product is unavailable
This romantic frock evokes images of late night garden strolls under the light of the silvery moon, while the scent of hyacinth lingers in the air. It is perfect for summer lawn parties or a garden rendezvous.
This stunning dress is bias cut and fashioned in luxuriously soft midnight blue silk chiffon that is covered in bouquets of vibrant summer flowers. It has a V-shaped neckline, ruched shoulders and is sleeveless. Gown also has an attached sash belt that ties to one side.
The back of the dress has a beautiful attached capelet that wraps around the front of the shoulders and drapes down the back adding fluidity to the ensemble. Capelet comes together with a snap at the center. There also is a tucked bustle in the back that adds an extra layer of exquisite draping.
All edges are wonderfully finished with rolled hems. This dress is unlined and sheer. A slip (not included) will be needed to wear underneath.
Dress fastens up the back with a hidden metal Talon zipper.
Condition: Very Good
There is a tiny hole near the neckline on the front (See photo). There is a tear in the back hem of the dress. It looks as though a lady may have put her heel through the bottom. It could easily be stitched closed and go unnoticed. Rip goes approximately 2.5" above hem. Otherwise, this dress is absolutely spectacular. Priced accordingly.
