This is an exquisite and fanciful very fine, black silk tulle gown which has been embellished with embroidered pink carnations throughout the design. The gown probably dates from the very late 1930's into the early 1940's. It has a fitted bodice with twelve fabric-covered buttons down the front for decorative purposes only. Beneath that strip of fabric is a series of snaps for closure. The gown also has a side zipper for closure. The long skirt is slightly fitted over the hips and then flares out. The gown is tiny with the bust line measuring 30" around, the waist line measuring 24" around, and the hips measuring 31" around. It is in excellent wearable vintage condition.
