1930s Bias Cut Black Crepe Gown with Beaded Illusion Bodice



The sheer beaded bodice takes center stage on this stunning gown. Heavily beaded (and we do mean heavy) with black seed beads in a stripe and dot pattern on sheer chiffon net, with 3" slits running across the bodice about an inch below the top of the neck line, with a short beaded fringe at the bust. The front portion of the bodice from bust to waist is self lined in crepe, leaving a provocative sheer decollete and back. The sleeves are sliced from the bottom of the shoulder to the cuff, giving the sleeve a little peek-a-boo effect. The bias cut crepe gown falls in a fluid column to the floor. The cut and style, especially the sleeves, is reminiscent of the Directoire-Empire revival. Gown closes on the left seam with a series of snaps, and an attached belt ties at the left hip.  Flat measurements are: Bust to 40", waist 28", hip 34", shoulder 13", sleeve 18" length 55". The bias cut should accommodate a healthy size 4 to 8.  Aside from a couple of faintly lighter spots near the hem, this is in excellent condition. $875
