Vintage 1960s Pink Silk Dress & Beaded Jacket Hong Kong Ladies Size XL Extra Large

Age: 1960s

Label: Made in Hong Kong British Crown Colony. Due to trade embargoes placed on the People's Republic of China by the international community, Hong Kong began to develop its garment trade during the 1950s, and due to limitations placed on export to the UK in 1959, export markets were established in North America. This is why so many excellent quality garments dating to the early 60s are found locally.

Description: This is a wonderful quality dress with matching jacket made of pink Shantung silk in the British Crown Colony of Hong Kong. The dress is made in a simple short sleeved style with a seam at either side defining the center panel and establishing the silhouette of the dress. Please note that the dress was large on my mannequin and was pinned back in order to better fit. The dress does up the back with a zipper. The jacket is made in a "box" cut, rounded neck, no collar and with darts at either side of the bust. The jacket has spectacular beaded trim around the neckline, down the front edges and at the sleeve cuffs. The beading consists of studded large rhinestones, crystal "glass" drops (these are not plastic) round faceted crystal glass beads, silver grey beads and silver grey bugle beads. The jacket is lined.

Color: Pink

Material: Shantung silk

Sizing: Size 20 1/2 is indicated, which I believe is a British sizing equivalent to a US 18, but I'm not sure, so please rely on the following measurements for fit:

Dress:

Shoulders: 17 1/2" across seam-to-seam

Bust: 44" around

Waist: 40" around

Hips: 48" around

Condition:

It is in very good, clean condition with no wear, tear, holes, stains or odors. If you would need to take down the hemline of the dress, there is a faint line at the actual fold, it can only be seen from the underside, not from the front of the garment. This dress and jacket have been very well cared for and stored over the years.
