Very Pretty Late 1930s Early 1940s Unlabeled Bias Cut Floral Print Silky Rayon Slip Dress

This is a lovely dress and the kind of piece that you only ever find with vintage. It is from the late thirties, maybe early forties and it is in wonderful condition. The dress is made from a bias cut silky rayon and it is gorgeous. It is so hard to find dresses from this time period in great condition anymore and this one is lovely. The fabric is very light and since it is cut on the bias it will move and drape to curve around your body when you slip it on. It gives the dress some play in its measurements since it will expand out quite a bit. The fabric is a silky rayon that has a crisp bright flower print running over its surface. The print is so vivid and gorgeous that you can't help but feel happy looking at it. The dress slips on over the head and just falls into place. It is suspended from two straps made of the same fabric and the front dips into a scoop. The back is cut into a deep V so that you get a wonderful expanse of bare skin. The rest just skims over your body to the hem, following your curves. The bias cut will bring the length up a bit depending on how much it opens out. It is gorgeous. Excellent condition
