A dress unlike any other. The colors -- fuchsia and kelly green flowers on cream. The cut -- sleeveless A-line design with its own slim straps beneath the marvelous "pinafore bib." And the embellishment -- each sequin has a glass bead at its center. The overall effect is wonderfully sparkly, delicate, and crisp. Fully lined. Perfect for any formal event. And how cute would it be shortened (just hem, don't cut)? From the early 1960s.
Labels: none -- may be home sewn (with great care, ingenuity, and a ridiculous amount of work)
Fiber/Care: unknown, burn test positive for silk (but we cannot claim certitude), dry-clean only
Condition: there is a small water-like stain at the top corner of the beading (see close-up photo). there is a pin-hole on the back. there is some very minor underarm discoloration. the upper bodice background color may be a bit darker than the rest of the dress (very subtle). to be on the safe side, we have not cleaned this dress, which is wearable as is (no soil or odor).
shoulders: 15.5"/39cm to outer edges of bib
total length: 54"/137cm shoulder to hem on front
