This is such a beautiful dress! It stands between two fashion eras... the neckline and trim are pure 30s whilst the fuller skirt is closer to the 40s. Put together, it makes for a real standout silhouette. The dress is in great condition. The voile is joined in two pieces on the collar along the salvaged edge but this is original to the dress and not a flaw. The black bow at the bodice is added but not fixed to the dress - it will accompany it if sold. The only issues I can see is some stitching unravelling at the waist for half inch ( approx 1cm ) but this is an easy fix and two tiny brown spots that get lost in the folds of the skirt at the bottom to the back. Small blemishes considering the age of the dress. These are shown in the last photograph.
Shown with a crinoline and velvet ribbon which are not included.
