This is a wonderful 60s era dress made by Montreal couturier Norbert Niewelt. I've been able to find very little about Niewelt other than Mario di Nardo, a respected Canadian designer of the 1950s and 1960s who learned "European couture" while apprenticing with Norbert Niewelt for one year.

This dress is beautifully hand sewn using high quality silk fabric with a metallic gold "branch" pattern woven into it. The dress is made in a quasi-wrap style, completely open at the front, and secured closed with two snaps at the right inside shoulder, one at the neckline and one at the waistline. The waist is cinched with a matching sash belt with a metallic tassel at either end. It has a square pocket affixed in a diagonal placement at the lower right side. The dress is lined in beige silk fabric. This was obviously an expensive gown in its day.

Color: Gold and beige

Material: Silk with a metallic weave

Sizing: No size is indicated, but this should fit a medium to large size - please note the following measurements for fit:

Shoulders: 14" across, shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam

Sleeves: 18 1/2" long

Sleeve inseam: 13" long

Bust: 38"-39" around, taken under the arm openings

Waist: 29" around, uncinched, but meant to be cinched with the sash belt

Hips: 36"-37" around

Overall length: 38 1/2", measured flat

It is in very good condition with no wear, tear, staining or odor. This dress was very well cared for over the years.

This is a gorgeous dress featuring exceptional quality fabric....wonderful addition to a collection of Canadian fashion.
