20's 30's BLACK SATIN bias-cut DRESS with rhinestones downton abbey M (A7)
Gorgeous "Old Hollywood" type dress of bias-cut heavy black satin. Wider-cut sheer netting sleeves with soutache flowers. The flowers on the sleeves have rhinestone centers, but the stones are cloudy from age. The neckline has two shiny silver tone metal dress clips sewn on (maybe not original to the dress??), some of the rhinestones are missing, but does not detract from the look. Amazing hook/eye closures on the back (picture 4)! The hooks originally were rhinestoned, but again, some are missing or cloudy, and again does not detract from the look at all! The silver is still shiny enough on the metal hardware that no one will even know there are missing stones. No zipper, the hooks in back are the only closure. Please compare the measurements below with a dress you already know fits well. It's OK if your body measures a little less than these measurements, the bias cut will allow for a nice conforming drape. I wear a modern S, and this was too loose in the body for me, I feel like it should be filled out at least a little more. Best probably for a M. Bust: 38" Waist 34" Hip: 41" Length: 42" There are a couple of tiny holes in the sleeve netting, but are not noticeable, because the netting is MADE of little holes, so they blend right in. Please convo me for more pics, I have plenty! Sorry, I cannot mark international shipments as 'gift', that is customs fraud.
