1930s Vintage - Vintage Evening Gown With Cape Collar - Black Silk Chiffon With Ruffles - Bust 76 cm
1930s Vintage - Vintage Evening Gown With Cape Collar - Black Silk Chiffon With Ruffles Black silk chiffon Art Deco evening gown with ruffled skirt and cape collar. A-line, floor length gown with seven double ruffles on the skirt is sleeveless, but the very large collar extends into a cape over the front, arms and across the back. Closes at the side with press studs. The sash is not the original one. The stitching on the ruffles is a pretty but subtle contrasting mauve. The dress is totally sheer, and I have photographed it over a cotton slip, which I am including in the price. There are no tags - a custom made garment. This dress has been dyed.

Very good. The dress has been dyed and turned out great! There is a small hole near the armhole at the back (4 mm) which is covered by the collar. Also one or two tiny ones hidden in the skirt ruffles. There is a mend at the base of the V at the back which is mostly covered by the cape. Overall look is excellent. I have added the ribbon sash.
