Dove gray silk evening gown circa 1947 with amazing detail. Size Large, Measurements in inches: bust 38, waist 28, hip free, length from shoulder to men 57": to the FLOOR elegance.
This gown is ON SALE for a short time. Don't miss out! Layaway is not available for this item while on sale.
Features: Firm woven silk fabric with a crisp finish, one piece dress with swooping neckline, slightly capped sleeves meant to be worn low on the shoulder (my mannequin's shoulder width is too narrow to show this correctly), fitted bust and waist with inverted construction, to echo the ruched applications of fabric at neckline and skirt.
Side metal zipper, lined bodice, VERY FULL skirt with TO THE FLOOR length, ( shown with a not so full under skirt) a VERY full petticoat or hoop crinoline would make this skirt sweep out like crazy.
The MOST AMAZING self fabric ruched decoration and corded piping! See pictures for details. I cannot describe how this fancy ruching MAKES the gown! It is pleated and fluted and gathered like icing on an elaborate wedding cake!
Hand tailored by a professional seamstress with extreme hand finished details.
One small hole (pictured) on the bodice that could easily be covered with a corsage, rhinestone brooch or a single silk flower.
Clean and fresh, strong fabric, vibrant color with no fading.
One of a kind gown likely made from a vintage Vogue or Specialty Simplicity sewing pattern.
Check measurements carefully! The gown could be "taken in" but it would be almost impossible to "let out" unless a professional is on your list of friends.
