Pictures do not do justice to this jet black silk chiffon velvet gown featuring cutout bodice lined in nude silk chiffon with hand-sewn rose montee and clear glass seed bead embellishments. (We have blown out the blacks to strengthen the details in the gown for viewing). Incredible bias cut, ruched at the sides with peplum sash adjoined at the waist in the front, wrapping around the back and closing with hooks and eyes at the side. Simply stunning v-drop back with one side bordered in hand-sewn rose montees, the other side bordered by the rose-montee strap extending to the mid-back; flat peplum around the waist and a dramatic tail on one side in the rear.
Measures: 38" x 30" 38"; Length 60"-63" in the rear
Closes with snaps and hooks and eyes on the side.
Label: Julius Garfinckel & Co. Washington - Paris
Condition: Very Good. A few missing rose montees; the fabric edges are fraying on the underside most notably on the underside of the peplum/sash.
