Vintage 1950s satin damask ballgown off white/gold Small Unbranded - Size: S - White - Vintage

£50.00

Product description

Vintage 1950s satin damask ballgown off white/gold Small. Full length ball gown. Fully boned bodice, zip at the side, gathered waist, halterneck. The bodice is lined. There is a lot of tiny handstitching and what looks like a couture number label on the inside (see last picture). Unfortunately it looks like somebody has dropped tomato sauce down the front in a few places, luckily some of this is hidden in the folds of the skirt. Am doubtful if this will come out, but you could cover this up with appliqued patches or use for costume. Waist 26 inches, bust is too big for our 34 inch mannequin, I would estimate about 35 inches.
