We have been getting good use of our wickedly narrow size zero dressmaker forms. So often the amazing vintage gowns that come our way are built for vintage physiques, thus the necessity to use the sliver of a form to showcase the precious finds that come our way. We love gowns from the 1930s when we can find them in fine condition such as this anonymous black silk jersey pleated halter gown with intricate embroidered panel of turquoise beads, paillettes, and sequins in jet noir, golden totes, and lipstick red all forming a dramatic and abstract design. The only caveat of this gown is that it is quite narrow, so remove a rib or two and buy "me"!
