1930s chiffon gown with puffed sleeves and shirred sweetheart bust.  Skirt does not have a waist seam but is fitted with princess seaming. Skirt has wide hem with a small band of stiffener that allows it to flare slightly.  Lining is a blue rayon acetate and there is a side metal zipper.  Bodice and sleeves are dotted with tiny flowers.

Dress is as is but wearable and presents pretty well.  Chiffon has some areas of discoloration and color variation along with a few small holes.  Lining is in good condition, waist tie is a bit wonky but I didn't note any staining or discoloration there. When I tried it on it appears that the hem is slightly longer on one side but I believe this is due to how I steamed it out.  Dress has been soaked and is clean. Again, the gown is as is but is surprisingly sturdy given the delicate fabric and most flaws wouldn't be noticeable under evening lighting.  

Please note that the gown is quite small.  I was able to pull the waist portion over my bustline with some effort but it was snug once on.  Really best for 32" or less.

Bust: 26"~stretched to 33.5" on me but was too tight.  Best for 32" or less

Waist: 22", 23" max

Hip: Free

Length: 52"

Waist length, to underbust seam: 12"
