Have you ever seen the Lerner and Loewe 1954 musical Brigadoon? It's about a magical Scottish village that only appears to outsiders every one hundred years. I reference Brigadoon because this 1930s bias cut gown bares a label for a shop from Edinburgh called Mamie and I must admit that this may be the one and only 30s gown to enter the hallowed walls of Decades baring a Scottish provenance. Thus, this is our little couture gown that is a mysterious to me as Brigadoon was to the American tourist Tommy who falls in love with Fiona, an ultimate femme fatale stuck in the 18th century who only appears on the fateful one-in-a-hundred-year's day when the two meet and well "It's Almost Like Being in Love." And love it is for this light rose hammered silk bias halter gown with train (don't worry it has a finger-ring so you can wear this down the red carpet without some an unfortunate heel incident) that may be as romantic as walking through "The Heather on the Hill." Pure old Hollywood 30s glam by way of Brigadoon, er, Edinburgh.

Custom light pink bias gown made for Mamie Edinburgh retail store in pink satin crepe, c. 1934. Modern size 2 to small 6.
