Original 1930s 30s Vintage Shiny Gold Lamé Bias Cut Cocktail Dress
This incredible dress was made from a fabulous gold lamé blended with gold silk in the 1930s. The fabric appears like shiny satin in the outside, yet the coarse lamé fibres are visible inside. It is cut on the bias to skim the wearer’s curves and to a flattering cocktail length. The dress is sleeveless and features a wonderful keyhole detail with a tie at the neckline. Bias binding has been used to add a decorative trim to the neckline. The only opening is a small hook at the neckline and the dress slides on over the wearer’s head. Inside, the dress is unlined and you can see the lamé fibres. There is also a large amount of seam allowance at the centre back, which could be taken out to make the dress larger.
Length: 43” plus 3 1/2” hem
Seam Allowance: 3” all the way down the dress
The dress is in good condition, however there are a few small snags as pictured and two area of slight lightening, which can only really be seen in certain light.
