Vintage 1940's Silver Silk Satin Shawl-Collar Low Backside Sculpted Formal Gown

$1,500

About

Enchanting ballgowns from the late 1940's era are perennial favorites and this silver showstopper is breathtaking. The garment's silver silk satin reads so modern yet the detailed structure is a treasure trove of Old Hollywood design. There is so much detail, you can tell this masterpiece was created with every angle in mind. So Charles James! The bodice has an elegant low cut shawl-collar plunge with a unique front flap overlay. This turns into impressive sculpted pleats with flow to a low backside. The nipped waist skirting skims the hip and flares out into a true full-length. Would make a really chic bridal option. It is impeccably seamed and on the level of modern day couture. Measurements Bust:32-33 inches Waist:25 inches Hips:up to inches Total Length:57 inches This late 1940's/early 1950's custom-made formal gown is in excellent wearable condition with no rips, holes or noticeable stains. Gorgeous hand-finishing throughout. Closes with back hidden metal hook/eye closures.
