Early 1930's Purple and Black Dress
From the seller:
Super adorable flapper Gatsby dress from the 1920/early 30s. Purple silk and black lace. Lots of details.
Condition: expert repairs to underarm, mended lace collar, worn and missing buttons, splitting fabric underneath lace. Very wearable!
Splitting fabric underneath lace and the seller says you can still wear this? Um, no. Just no.
This is probably from about 1931/1932. The waist length is from the previous decade but the details - the way the lace is cut, the buttons, ect - are all very 1930's in style.
