1930s NRA 1933-1935 PURPLE velvet braided open back gown dress xs | new winter
Charming 1930's dress! Done in a slinky silk velvet in rich purple. Cutouts on the neckline with attached braided detail. Iconic 30's style with high braided waist, bias cut skirt and open back. The best part though is the SLEEVES and BACK draping! The sleeves are attached at the gathered shoulders and hang loose in a donut shape. The back has a loopy braided panel that is so glamourous and fab! Side snaps. Neckline is partially lined in lavender silk.
