Early 1930s Sequin Silk Crepe Shift Dress

You can see the transition from the twenties flapper silhouette to the more fitted forties in this lovely dress. It is still cut loose through the waist but the waist seam is there and placed higher then its predecessors. The base is a silk crepe in black and onto this is a amazing swirled design in glossy black sequins. These cover the entire dress, back and front, top to bottom. The skirt is cut lean with a looser waist. The bodice is simple and cut slightly loose with a scooped neck and has been left sleeveless. Excellent condition and gorgeous!
