1930s Vintage Pink and Blue Striped Evening Gown • 30s Couture Dress • Hollywood
Incredible stunning and beyond wowza evening gown from the 30s/40s in a delicious raspberry pink and navy blue vertical striped silky rayon fabric with short puffed sleeves and a satin rayon fuscia waist sash with a bow on the back and draping long tails. This is most definitely a showstopper of an Old Hollywood glamorous gown and worthy for any red carpet event - you will look like a million dollar movie star and no mistake. This is a hand made couture gown with no manufacturer or deisgner label attached, although it is strikingly similar to a Schiaparelli!

Absolutely marvellous - the only issues to note are that the ends of the pink sash tails are water marked and a bit grubby from trailing on the floor, with a few other marks further up, one that sits on the waist but disappears under the folds. It might also benefit from the waist sash being stiched a bit more to secure the ruched up gathered effect, whilst attaching to the waist at the back a bit more securely too, you can see areas were it has pulled at the dress underneath and left a teeny hole - see all photos.
But apart from that it's splendiferous.
Vintage sizing is very different to modern day sizes, they’re usually smaller depending on the era of manufacture. So to ensure a good fit please go by the measurements provided. I measure the garment laid flat edge to absolute edge then double, which give the maximum, you will need to measure your own clothes to compare sizing.
