This is a 1960s vintage evening gown made in a halter style. The dress is made of pink chiffon over white chiffon. It has a cape style shoulder cover that affixes at the neck with a hook and loop - the closure is decorated with crystal glass and faux pearl drops. The bodice of the dress is pleated and it has a defined waistline that is cinched with a wide belt that is construction of pink chiffon over leather. The belt (very wonder woman) is decorated with pink rhinestones, glass bugle beads, plastic crystals and faux pearls. The dress has an exposed back and the halter does up with three covered buttons. The dress has a built-in white acetate slip and the bodice is lined in white acetate. The slip does up the back with a zipper and the back of the dress closes with hooks and loops.
Label: No label, but obviously made by a professional seamstress/dressmaker
Color: Pink in a "hot" or "shocking" tone
Material: Chiffon, I believe silk, but might be rayon
Sizing: There is no size label, but this should fit a medium to large size - please rely on the following measurements for fit, taking the style of the garment into account:
Bust: 36” around - might accommodate a slightly larger size due to the open back
Waist: 28” - 29” around - the belt is adjustable from 29 1/2” down to 26 1/4”, if needed
Hips: 42” around, but meant to fall loosely
Length: 59”, measured flat from the top of the halter to the hemline
Condition: It is in very good condition with the exception of some wear to the pink chiffon at the back of the halter near the buttoned closure. This should be covered by one’s hair at the back, but could be repaired in any case. Otherwise, the dress is in very good condition with no pronounced wear or staining. The dress has not been cleaned, but it is in very usable clean condition as is. It was well stored over the years and looks like it saw little use.
