Ethereal 1950s Strapless Tulle and Star Sequin Confection

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This 1950s ballgown is a fairytale dream! With lesser quality pieces sequins or beads are applied in a continuous string, but this piece is couture quality, meticulously made and decorated with myriad sequins and star shaped paillettes each individually knotted and finished. It is heavily boned and structured in the bodice and is unlined in the skirt (meant to be worn with a separate hoop or underpinning, not included). This piece is not labeled, but it is surely of the finest quality and house!
