1960's Sybil Connolly Irish Haute Couture Pleated Pink Linen Strapless Dress

$2,800

About

Sybil Connolly is most famous for her extremely rare pleated linen clothing.  This strapless pink gown is a stunning example of these pleated designs.  They are made from handkerchief linen which is hand dyed and then pleated.  It takes nine yards of linen to make one yard of the pleated linen used in this dress.  The pleated empire bodice is accented with a satin band above the voluminous skirt.  The boned bodice is fully lined in white silk, the skirt is lined in pink silk, with hand stitching to keep the pleats in place. The skirt has an attached white organza petticoat for added fullness. There is an interior center back zipper attached to the petticoat and the bodice as well as a shorter center back zipper attached to the pleated skirt.  This extremely rare dress is in excellent condition and appears unworn.  Measurements;  Bust 34"  Waist 25"  Hips Full  Length at center back 51"
