Sweet Disorder Vintage

1930s Old Hollywood Taffeta Gown


 Breathtaking 1930s maxi dress. True Old Hollywood glam with a sweetheart neckline and puffed sleeves. Corset style bodice is laced with a deeper rust colored taffeta, matching the alternating tiers of the skirt. The skirt is so gorgeous and glamorous. It is more than a full circle of fabric and has a beautiful sway and swish when you move. The fabric is a light acetate taffeta, so although there is a ton of volume it is still graceful with no bulk. Hidden metal side zip for ease. I adore the lush, unusual color of this dress and its dainty glamour so iconic of the era. A divine 1930s gem. 

Label is Jean Carroll, an early iteration of the Peggy Hunt label. Under the Jean Carol label Hunt made dresses for many Hollywood stars, including Marlene Dietrich, Bette Davis, and Mary Pickford. This dress is definitely worthy of the silver screen.

This stunning 1930s gown is in very good condition. There is overall light wear to the taffeta fabric, a little strain at the waist seams and a few minor marks, most hidden in the volume of the skirt. Two small faint marks on the back of the bodice near the waist, and a little spot of iron shine on the front at the bottom eyelet. Presents beautifully. Freshly hand washed, steamed and ready to wear.
