A vintage 1930s silk crepe floral print gown that is bias cut and has a dangling "stone" at the front neckline and dyed fur cuffs. 

Size: approximately a size xs to small (wearer's measurements should not be right at max of dress -- it's bias cut and meant to have a bit of drape -- the dress is shown unpinned on my 34-24-34 dress form)

Bust: 37"

Waist: 31.5" (meant to drape smaller -- this measurement is large so that the wearer can fit it over her shoulders/bust)

Hip: 38"

Length: 66"

Condition: Good to very good. Dress presents beautifully but does has a handful of flaws. It is faintly yellowed in the upper shoulder/back bodice area. It has a couple of tiny holes, one on the shoulder, and one on the front hip. It has some dark spots at the hem. And it has a few darkened water marks, one on the lower skirt, and one on the front bodice. The front bodice spot is the most noticeable of the flaws (see last two pics), but it does blend into the print. I have not attempted to clean this dress because I don't have a professional cleaner I can trust with older/rare/delicate garments. I have priced the dress with both its rarity and flaws in mind.
