Antique 1930s white organza bias dress, sheer cotton 30s gown, Vionnet style Art Deco, party dress, Hollywood elegance.

Beautiful 1930’s sheer bias cut dress.
White cotton organza…
this is “the” 30’s summer lawn party dress
for the post-Gatsby set.
The dress in the movies on Carole Lombard
Myrna Loy… and all those greyhound slim beauties!

Classic Madeleine Vionnet style bias cut 1930’s dress.
Sheer cotton organza.
Very fine with a wonderful crispness.
Relaxed bodice with wide neckline.
Inverted V paned in front with slight gathers
above for the bust.
The back has a simple snap closure at the neckline
Dress opens along the side with snap closure.
Three quarter sleeves with rows of ruffles…
made from the same white organza.
The sleeves are gathered very gently
at the bodice seam… with numerous rows of stitching.
This creates a slight “shirring”
a lovely delicate detail.
The dress has a high waist.
Attached is a bias cut long skirt
with a center panel in front.
In the back are two panels…
that flare at the bottom for that marvelous “kick”
you see on Ginger Roger’s dresses.
I’ve pulled this out a bit in the back photo to show
this enchanting detail.
Multiple rows of ruffles at the hem is 7 1/4″ long!

Excellent vintage condition. A few pin holes in the cotton… but really quite excellent.
