Vintage 1930s Navy Chiffon Petal Sleeves Evening Dress

Raleigh Vintage

This 30s evening gown is - simply put - stunning.  Dark, navy blue silk chiffon.  A simple silhouette with a blouson bodice and straight skirt.  The sleeves and collar are decorated with small, off-white (almost ivory) fabric flowers with a three-dimensional texture.  Side snaps and back neck buttons.  The original, bias cut under slip is included and (in our opinion) is lovely enough to be worn as a dress itself. 
NOTE:  The slip does close in the back, but it was a tad too small in the bust for the dress form.

    Label:  none
    Fabric:   Silk chiffon; fabric flowers; rayon
    Circa:  1930s

    BEST FITS:  XS  (see measurements)

    CONDITION:  Overall very good - excellent.  The dress shows light, normal wear.  The only issue to note is some age spotting on the flowers (see photo); this is mostly on the underside of the petals thus not too noticeable, but there are some small spots that are visible on the front of the petals.  Priced accordingly.
