1930s gown vintage gown jean harlow gown
Hands down one of the most
amazing 1930s gowns I've had the
pleasure to offer! Ivory crepe back,
texured satin silk bias cut gown has
flat bows atop shirred shoulders,
deco rhinestone sash and deep V
back. Coordinating capelet has
cowl neck in front and rhinestone
buttons down back, trimmed all
around with a blend of marabou and
chicken feathers. The dress is not
perfect, sadly...there is a make-up
stain cleverly concealed with a
period-correct brooch, a few light
dots on bodice and couple on front
of skirt toward hem (as shown)...a
few stress marks on seat of gown.
Very faint and worth overlooking
when wearing this beauty! Click
