#4435 - c. 1933 Rose Crepe Gown with Matching Long Jacket with Fox Sleeves! Once again, I consulted an expert to get the exact dating on this gown.. so for those of you who like to dress to match your antique automobiles (so this gown is great for 1933 or slightly later.... as you might wear a dress a few years old... especially during The Great Depression!) This gown is fabulous on! Ever so slightly trained at back.. hugs the curves of your body with the bias cut and soft coral colored crepe fabric. Comes with matching tie belt which you can use on the gown, or over the jacket as you see. The jacket is knee length with no closures.. and the most amazing fox sleeves!!! I was told by the same expert that it's fox... so don't sue me if it's something slightly different!! :) I'll give you HIS name! :) The huge bunch of coral velvet flower ornament looks to be original. You could remove it... but that's what makes it look SO 1930's! Excellent condition with just two very very minor light dirt lines on the skirt (around knee) and the bodice (at front). They are really hardly worth a mention. You have to remember.. this is 70+ years old.. and that's the only issue I can find!
