1950's Peggy Hunt Sheer Lace-Illusion Black Hourglass Evening Dress Gown

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

An amazing and highly stylized 1950's evening gown by Peggy Hunt. The silhouette is classic pin-up "femme fatale"; the skirt is deliciously lean! The bodice is ultra seductive with its low-cut plunge, shelf-bust lace applique illusion. My favorite part is the stunning bow-tie accent which really catches the eye! The nipped-waist flatters the waistline and the back fishtail-train will turn any woman into a starlet. You do not easily find this level of workmanship on garments today.

Measurements
Bust:38-39 inches
Waist:31 inches
Hips:41 inches
Total Length:55 inches (4-inch seam allowance)

This vintage designer gown is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes. Perfectly working back metal-zipper. This item is over 50 years old and is truly stunning!
