A jaw dropping late 1930's/early 1940's evening gown in sheer black lace covered in shimmering black sequins. It is very rare to find such a stunning gown from this era in a size like this. Body skimming gown with "V" neck, set-in waist and fluttering cap sleeves. Sleeves have a stiff marquisette liner so that they will keep their shape. Slit back with self fabric buttons at the top. Gown has a lovely train. Side metal zipper. The gown is completely sheer and does not come with a slip. It is shown here with a combination of slips that we put together for photo purposes only (not included).
Size: The dress has a little flexibility in the measurements as the lace has a bit of stretch, but best in the neighborhood of 43" bust, 34" waist, 46" hips. Approximately 60" from shoulder to hem (66" to tip of train).
Condition: In great, wearable condition. Although you cannot see them, we have made quite a few tiny repairs to the lace of the bodice. It's possible we may have missed a broken thread or two but I think we were pretty thorough. Please note: The lace does NOT feel weak at all... I think the majorty of the breaks were from the way it was hanging over the years. The covering on one of the self fabric buttons is worn. The hem binding (inside the hem edge) has some separations, but the hem lays fine and they are not visible outside the gown. There are some missing sequins on the seat of the gown.
