Silk chiffon & lace dress, 1930s
Diaphanous dresses from the 1930s are treasured by collectors for their fluid grace. The ultra-feminine dress combines delicate, pale peach chiffon with matching silk lace. The body-conscious cut is a total departure from the boyish, straight flapper dresses of the late 1920s.
The body-hugging style is broken above the hipline with flirty bias-cut lace ruffles. The lace skirt falls in gentle folds. The dress closes on the side with hooks. It comes with a narrow lace sash. The dress is sheer and will need a slip.
The silk lace motifs (bottom two pictures) are executed with consummate artistry, creating a delicate floral design of the utmost feminine allure. This fabulous dress epitomizes the seductive sensuality of 1930s glamour.
Here is a dress with attitude, for beauty is a habit, and a good one to acquire. Think of beauty as something that a woman creates for herself. It affects her whole attire and even her facial expression. In the end, she comes to look like her own ideal image of herself.
The condition is excellent. You just need to add a slip.
It measures: 36" bust, 28" waist, 36" hip, 15 1/2" from shoulder to waist, and 52" from shoulder to hem.
