Sweet Disorder Vintage

1930s Deco Silk Velvet Maxi Dress


Vintage 1930s silk velvet maxi dress with serious femme fatale drama. Fabulous Deco brass pyramid adornments line the slits in the cold shoulder sleeves. The high neckline ties in the back over a glimpse of skin between the shoulder blades. A little blouson fit  in the chest, then body skimming through the waist & hips. Streamlined seaming over the back of the hips and bias cutting create gentle flare at the hem. Tall cuffs add to the drama of the balloon sleeves. Little snaps at the wrist for ease. The photos are lightened to show you all the fabulous details of the silhouette. NRA label. Very good condition. The brass embellishments show a little patination, and the velvet they are clamped to shows a little wear between the pyramids due to their weight. There is a little foxing to the velvet which is noticeable in the photos as they are lightened. The dress is midnight black in person. There is a tiny less than 1 cm mend on the bodice, shown in a photo greatly lightened so you can see it clearly. Not noticeable when worn. The dress is sound but a little delicate as with all silk velvet of this age. Clean and ready to wear. A rare Art Deco gem that oozes sensuality.
