This gorgeous black gown is from the 1930's ( possibly 1940's). It's made of the softest velvet material and has a side zipper. The simple rounded neckline and loose fitting top section make for a great, wearable look. It has a classic style that's perfect for multiple occasions. This would be an amazing gown for a formal event or holiday party. 

Details..

Fits like: Medium- Depending on the desired fit, this would probably fit a US womens size small to medium. The top section should not be too fitted and there should be some extra fullness and blousiness. When worn by a model (5'9, 34C bust, usual size 4 dress) this was a tiny bit large and a little too short, but very wearable. 
Bust: up to 37/38 inches
Waist: up to 30 inches
Hips: free
Length: 59 inches
Material: velvet
Label: Neiman Marcus
Condition: Good vintage condition. For its age, the dress is in good condition. Because of wear to the top section from years of being on hangers, there are tears along the neckline and arms. They have since been mended an are very hard to see because of the black fabric. Please see the last photo and ask any questions prior to purchasing. There are a few mended areas in the skirt but they are hard to see and the velvet is overall beautiful looking. 


* If you have any questions regarding the fit or condition of this item please contact The Ivy Retreat prior to purchasing. I will be more than happy to send extra pictures and give additional information if needed. The condition and style of all garments will be described in detail. Vintage items have been worn and loved, so tiny imperfections may be present and care is to be taken with their preservation.
