Long black 30s dress silk crepe
Long black 30s dress silk crepe

This dress was in a terrible shape. For the sake of the beautiful fabric it was taken apart, and put together + added details to give shape and repair seams. Everything done by hand with silk and silk thread. Sort lang 30-tallskjole. Var miserabel og på grunn av stoffet ble den tatt fra hverandre, satt sammen igjen og gitt form, detaljer og forsterkning med silke og silketråd. Fantastisk å ha på og et syn for guder. Gallakjole, festkjole, den lille sorte.
