Rare Bill Gibb Devore Silk Velvet Evening Ensemble

About the Item

Incredible early 70s "dévoré" silk velvet and gold lame set composed of a short kimono-caftan and a long buttoned maxi skirt. The top is cut wide with sleeves opening down the waist. Whereas the skirt is fully lined in black silk, the top is unlined. Worn as an ensemble or separately, it is giving the impression of an enchanted stained glass wearable mosaic. Scattered iridescent strass braids enhance this glittering fairy effect. Fits approx. : Caftan -> US 2-8 / FR 36-40 Maxi skirt -> US 2-6 (small US 6) / FR 36-38 (small FR 38) Measurements (taken flat) : Caftan -> Width (shoulder to shoulder) -> no defined seam Bust : open with no side seams Waist : open and meant to be loose Length (neck to hem) approx. 97 cm (38.2 inches) Sleeve length approx. 54 cm (21.3 inches) Maxi skirt -> Waist approx. 31.5 cm (12.4 inches) Hips approx. 47 cm (18.5 inches) Length (waist to hem) approx. 109-110 cm (42.9-43.3 inches) This item has been professionally cleaned, pressed & carefully inspected by a couture-trained seamstress before being sold.
