1930's Candellight Satin gowns

Bias cut, slinky candlelight satin gowns epitomize the glamorous heady days of Hollywood in the 1930's. Like today, Hollywood starlets of the time hugely influenced fashion. This style of gown was much copied and adapted by the nimble fingered young bride who wanted to shimmer and shine.
 I have often come across original sewing patterns of this time and indeed a sewing manual belonging to my great grandfather (a tailor in London) has a number of patterns in this style.
 These gowns can be tricky to wear for mere mortals but if you are lucky to be lean and slender they can be totally knock out!
