About

This is a rare, late 1950's early Nelly de Grab vintage brocade 2 piece gold dress with tiny multi colored flowers. She was known for her more casual cotton prints and day dresses, but this is an early example of her more elegant designs. Press "continue reading" to see detailed measurements. I would estimate this to be a modern day size 6/8 but please use the measurements below as a guide. I love the beautiful pleating in the skirt!
