Size 10 30s Party Dress - Authentic 1930s Black Fishnet & Shocking Pink Net - Shirred Bodice - Flounced Skirt - Altered Design - Bust 36

$ 225.00

This authentic 1930s dress is a femme steampunk design with a shirred front bodice, layers of sheer fishnet ruffles to the shoulders, and a flounced two-tone skirt accented with rosettes and ribbons. It was once all-black, but its front skirt was in such poor condition we've carefully removed it and added the pink details, re-creating its style in the spirit of a 30s robe du soir.

Condition Detail
Very nice, the left sleeve has a subtle repaired hole to one of the ruffles, hard to find; the black layer of the front skirt has several small holes obscured by the gathered-up flounces at either side; the zipper has a 1/2-inch wide band of twill tape along its edge, likely added to widen the bodice just a bit
