1950s William Pearson Vintage Dress Floral Metallic Gold Lame Brocade Full Skirt

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is a dazzling copper and gold lame floral brocade vintage dress with splashes of orange. This fabulous metallic dress was purchased at Isabell Gerhart, a high end woman's boutique in Houston, Texas in the late 1950s or early 1960's. The dress was designed by William Pearson with classic full skirt, fitted waist and back zipper. It is in excellent condition with a full, twirl-able skirt! I have shown it with additional crinoline slip, (not included) to show the fullness of the skirt. William Pearson's earlier dresses are very hard to find and this one is truly exceptional! Please use the measurements as a guide for the best fit, but I would estimate this dress to be a modern day size 6.

BUST: 34"
WAIST: 26"
LENGTH from top of shoulder to waist: 17"
LENGTH from under arm to waist: 10"
LENGTH from waist: 26"
