We recently found this amazing vintage black evening gown from the 1930's - early 1940's. Such old Hollywood glamour! Reminds us of many film noir style movies. This stunning evening party dress is very small though. It does have at least 2" of extra fabric to let out at the seams though. The gown is strapless with sheer ruching on top of the rayon liner. The long floor length skirt has layers and rows of sheer ruffles that are delicately edged in black glass beads. Each arm has a sheer fabric shawl like wrap of fabric. Made by the famous I. Magnin department store. They were a competitor of Saks Fifth Avenue during this time, & only sold very high end clothing & house wares just like Saks. We're so madly in love with it!
