Vintage 1940's Sophie Gimbel Yellow-Roses Floral Silk Cap-Sleeve Plunge Gown



Breathtaking 1940's yellow-roses print garden gown by the highly adored "Sophie Originals" label. Sophie Gimbel was a leading force of mid-century American fashion and also married the president of Saks Fifth Avenue. This garden gown reads is so fresh and modern with the high quality feather-light silk used. The dress combines a fetching, girlish appeal with a woman's allure—a dynamite combination. The sculpted cap-sleeve bodice with hourglass belted nipped waist is beyond flattering. Yards and yards of pleated silk finish this garment off with the perfect ethereal vibe. Wear it to a gala; wear it for a wedding; or wear it just for glamour's sake! Measurements Bust:35-36 inches Waist:28 inches Hips:Swing Sweep Total Length:59 inches This 1940's Sophie Gimbel designer couture gown is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working side metal-zipper and interior lining. This dress is over 70 years old and is an investment piece that will only increase in value over time.
