This exquisite strapless, full skirted vintage evening gown has a long train - which I have photographed displayed on the dressing screen, and also laid out on the floor. Unfortunately, I don't have the right size model to wear the gown and it is also not right on my antique mannequins, so I cannot show how stunning the gown looks when worn. I think it will make a sensational, very different and special summer wedding dress. This beautiful, one off couture gown appears all hand-stitched, in what I believe is an ice blue silk fabric with silk/satin lining, hand decorated with hand stitched silver glass beads. Clearly this was tailor-made by the designer for the lucky lady who previously owned it.

I estimate that in today's sizes, the ballgown will fit from a generous 10 to a small 14. Please check all of the measurements to make sure it will fit you. The skirt width, at widest part is about 47"/48", so a lot of good quality fabric was used to create this stunning frock, and as you will see in the relevant images, it is fully lined. The bodice is boned and is very well made giving good bust support when it is worn. Bodice measures about 10 in length from the shoulder to waist. I think all other important measurements are given in the item specifics. Please take time to view all of the images as these will be the most helpful part of the item description and condition report, but do please read the item specifics and written condition report too.
