Product Description

This is a fabulous example of late 1930s subtle glamour – imagine any Film Noir actress dressed for the evening and this is it! Think Barbara Stanwyck, Veronica Lake, Joan Crawford…
Bias cut skirt is satin backed silk crepe
Shirt style top with collar is silk georgette scattered with black sequins, buttoned down the front to the waist which is encircled by a ruched belt. Bell sleeves.The net shoulder pads are visible through the georgette, but only enhance the classic late 30’s square shouldered look. The bound buttonholes are a beautiful couture touch.
