Catch of the Day: January 10, 2011 1930's Bias Cut Dress

This breathtaking 1930's bias cut dress is made of a dark forest green silk with a magnolia flower print of light green, yellow, and white.  Offered on eBay for the discerning collector, this fabulous dress is in remarkable vintage condition, with only a few tiny pin holes which can only be seen if the dress is held up to the light.  I would estimate the dress to be a modern day size 10, or perhaps a generous 8.  As always, any interested buyer is urged to read the measurements as they appear at the auction website.  The lovely shawl collar comes to a bow at the center.  The V cut of the dress at the bodice serves to enhance the bust, and would be most becoming on a small busted woman.  The generous skirt is the type which flutters as one walks.  Offered by 1860 - 1960 the dress is currently priced at $199.00 with just over 1 day of bidding remaining.

Happy Shopping Kittens!  If you find balls of yarn like this, you are doing well indeed!
