Vintage 1930s Black Evening Dress with Velvet Petal Sleeves

The perfect dress for a holiday party!  Lightweight black rayon crepe.  High, peaked waist with a straight skirt that flows into a wide fishtail hem.  The sleeveless dress has black velvet petals that drape over the shoulders.  Flounced tiered cascade down the back of the skirt from below a grouping of black velvet roses.  Elongated keyhole opening in the back with a rhinestone button.  Side snaps.

    Label:  none
    Fabric:  Rayon; velvet     
    Circa:  1930s

    BEST FITS:   XS  (see measurements)

    CONDITION:  Overall very good.  The dress shows light, normal wear.  The only thing to note is some old glue residue (the leaves where glued together for some reason), but it is difficult to notice on the exterior.  The roses on the back will need a steaming to re-shape them after shipping.
