This great 1950's party dress looks to be hand sewn. It is made of a light dusty pink brocade fabric with a feather pattern. It is lined with a net crinoline and under that is some very stiff canvas type material. The top of the bodice is trimmed with crinoline and there is a flap sewn down over the top of each breast. There are two 6" stays sewn in to the bodice to keep its upright structure. It is gathered into small pleats in the back and larger ones in the front with a sweep of a little over 180". It has spaghetti straps and a 14.50" zipper down the back with a hook and eye at the top. I would say that it is a size 4 or 6. The measurements are: Armpit to armpit 33", Waist 27", Length from front 40.50", Around the bodice 33 1/2". Excellent condition.
