1950's French Couture Heavily-Pleated Black Chiffon One-Shoulder Party Dress

About

Seductive 1950's French custom-made goddess dress from the "Old Hollywood" era of glamour! This stunning silk-chiffon garment has so much detail, you can tell it was made with loving devotion. The boned bodice is hand-pleated and hand-stitched into place with a unique asymmetric one-shoulder. I love the flattering nipped-waist which flows into a side drape design! Truly, this dress would have taken days to finish. A pure work of art and a study in dressmaking technique which reminds me of the famous Jean Desses. Breathtaking and timeless; I totally imagine this gliding down the red carpet! Measurements Bust:35-36 inches Waist:29 inches Hips:Swing Sweep Total Length:52 inches This vintage custom-made garment is in excellent condition with no stains or rips. Perfectly working back metal-zipper and full boning. Only sign of age are a few tiny pin-holes which get lost in the voluminous skirting. This item is over 50 years old and is truly breaktaking!
