Vintage formal dress in soft peach chiffon with delicate lace bodice and flowing skirt (full enough for a crinoline, but we like the old-Hollywood look without). Beautifully finished with picot stitching on both layers and lots of hand stitching throughout. Closes with a metal "double Talon" side zipper. From the late 1930s. From the Hamilton estate.
