Vintage 1930s blush silk chiffon gown with honeycomb smocking and shirring at bust. Incredibly rare, precious find. Sheer.
SIZE: Recommended for size XS-M (smocking gives the bust and waist some stretch). Modeled on a size small frame. Please refer to the measurements listed below.

MATERIAL: no content tag but assuming silk chiffon.
CONDITION: remarkable for its age. one undone smocking stitch on left strap, and two very faint blemishes on left front bodice that get lost in the pleats and are not visible when worn. One pindot-sized hole in skirt, and a few discreet faint blemishes near hem. See close-up photos.
