Sweet Disorder Vintage
1930s Iced Lilac Taffeta Gown
Vintage 1930s gown in a delicate shade of lilac ice. Divine details~ huge puffed sleeves, ruched bodice and tiered floor length skirt. A little pleated ruffle frames the sweetheart neckline. The voluminous puffed sleeves are ruched in the center for gorgeous shaping and height. Bodice comes to a point at the center of the waist. Tie back for your perfect fit. The skirt is tiered with bands of piping in a classic Deco style with lots of volume at the hem. Taffeta is lightweight, probably acetate but could be silk. Hidden side button placket. Truly excellent condition, the only note I can find is very faint color change on the back of the bodice (see photo). The darkness at the hem in the photos is shadows, not the color of the skirt. Immaculately clean, fresh and ready to wear.
