Outstanding 1930s Unlabeled Vibrant & Joyous Mutli Colour Floral Silk Crepe Dress

The three dresses I have for you today are more from that same single owner collection that I recently did two capsules from. Her collection was lovingly sourced over decades and she has decided that it is time let them back out into the world for others to enjoy. The first two drops centered around the 1930s but we have expanded into her collection to add some other decades this time as well. Outstanding designs from these eras are increasingly hard to find. This one is drop dead gorgeous and even better in person.

This is just a wonderful dress from this time period that is made of a heavy rich silk crepe. The fabric is something you will never see in today's modern fabric production. If you are a collector of pieces from this time period you know that this one is special. The vivid floral print that runs over the entire dress is just spectacular and my photos do not come close to doing it justice to what it looks like in person. The colours are amazingly bright still and it feels joyful just to look at this dress. I do not think you could be unhappy when you wear this one. The dress slips over the head and zips to close at one side. A pretty bow detail at the front with a little straps of the same fabric that slip through a loophole and then that you tie to gather in the base of the sleeve. I didn't photo it but there's actually two more matching little straps that you can do the same thing for the back. This gives you the choice to wear the top a couple different ways because you could do bows on all of them, none of them, or any of the four. It is so clever. The front has a more squared off neckline and the fabric is gathered vertically over the bust and back in pretty little hand-gathers for detail. The dress is so well made that I think you could wear it either way around. The waist is finished with a wide band of the same fabric with multiple small horizontal panels stitched together to make that band. The skirt is gathered into that and flows to the floor and has a pretty amount of fabric in it. When you have it on it will waft and float around you a bit. It is so pretty. Between the sweet and romantic design and that spectacular print this one is an absolute beauty. Excellent condition
