FEATURES - I love velvet dresses/gowns from the 30s & 40s. They are so flattering and feel so luxurious. This gorgeous dress features a super plush deep berry velvet. The neckline has a trim of multi-colored sequins and is finished with tiny beads. The sleeves are puffed and feature gathering at the ends. The waistline design is flattering with has an attached back belt and a decorative bow with hook and eye closures. The dress has no closures and slips over the head to be worn. Be sure to check the measurements and compare them with something similar in your wardrobe to ensure fit, has having no closure can skew the best fit. So glamorous and chic. A wonderful choice for formal and festive occasions.
MATERIAL - Feels like rayon velvet
CONDITION - Good condition for age - there are some marks in the velvet from storage, most notable under the arms. Cannot detect stains or odors but would recommend dry clean only from this gem by a trusted individual.
