1940's Couture Draped Gown
Ca. 1940’s. Spectacular, couture, draped ballgown of pale pink Leno gauze (a special weave that maintains the airiness of the fabric while giving it extra strength). Ruched sleeves with tiny metal zipper cuffs. Notched collar. Metal zipper at the back. Unlabeled, but extremely reminiscent of Valentina Schlee’s work - particularly the sleeve style, notched collar and fabric. Would make a stunning wedding gown. Faint fade/yellowing at the cuffs. A few tiny pulls to the fabric near the darts at the bust. A few faint areas of discoloration in the folds of the skirt draping which can’t be seen. Otherwise, excellent condition. Please note that the dress is sheer.
Fits Size: S - M (for reference, model in photo is 5'6" + size XS)
Measurements are a bit complicated - please inquire. :)
