Very unique dress from the 1930s. The construction says to me that it may be French. So this dress confused me when I first found it so I had it looked at by a fashion historian that helped confirm it is truly from the 1930s. It does not have any closures. It is meant to slip on and have a belt bring in the waistline. I believe it is silk or similar. The belt is just to show how it is worn but it is NOT included.
