Hattie Carnegie 1950s Vintage Dress Gold Metallic Lame Blue Floral Evening Gown

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


This is a stunning rare vintage Hattie Carnegie formal evening gown from the 1950's! The shimmery metallic silk brocade fabric is covered with large dark mauve and tiny aqua flowers. There is a back metal zipper and the 3/4 length sleeves are slightly gathered at the ends. My favorite part of this dress is that it has pockets! This is an exceptionally beautiful dress and so elegant. It is in a slightly larger size, which is always nice to find in vintage clothing.You can wear it with a tulle underskirt (as shown, not included), or without. I had a difficult time photographing this dress, it picks up the light beautifully in person and the color is a soft gold. Please use the measurements as a guide, but I would estimate this to be a modern day US size 10.

Excellent. The only issue is some discoloration in the front portion of the inside lining and under the arms on the lining only - it does NOT show anywhere on the outside. Price has been adjusted accordingly..
