This stunning gown is in very good vintage condition: there are some breaks in the lace at the waist and hips - there is gold satin underneath the lace so if one so desired, the lace could be removed if not repaired, and a few snags in the organza here and there - these are difficult to discern when the gown is worn, however, due to the folds on the material.

Please be sure to note the soft folds of the skirt and the peplum-like lace over gold satin that encircles the waist and comes to points at the hips, ballerina style. Note, too, the flattering gold pleated satin "cumberbund" - 5" in the front and 3" wide in the back. The lace over gold satin decolletage peeks out coyly from behind a cap sleeved opaque green blouson; be sure to note the slit at the top of each of the sleeves. There is an attached green stiff satin crinoline under the skirt - and it goes "swish" when one moves!

Approximate measurements:
(blouson) shoulder to shoulder: 16"
arm pit to arm pit: 16"
sleeve length: 4"
waist (flat): 14"
hips (flat): 18"
side metal zipper length: 14"
back length: 55"

This would make a wonderful addition to your vintage clothing collection and is a fine example of wearable late 1940s, early 1950s textile art.
