Original 1930s 30s Vintage Black Velvet Femme Fatale Dress
This fabulous dress was made in the 1930s from luxuriously soft velvet. It features gorgeous gathering around the neckline which makes the fabric fall in flattering gently draped pleats around the bust. The shoulders are puffed with small shoulder pads to enhance the shape and the small rounded collar looks great turned up for extra femme fatale drama. The dress has no openings but the waist has been elasticated at the front at some point to make it easier to slide over the head.
The dress is in good condition, however there are a number of pinholes and depressions to the velvet as pictured. There is also a larger area near the hem, where the fabric appears to have gotten wet and is less soft to the touch, this does however get lost in the folds of the dress when worn. There are also a few seam pops and repairs and a hole to the underarm as pictured.
