Vintage 1950s 50s Strapless Gold Silk Beaded Formal Gown Dress by Kay Selig


Stunning vintage gold silk gown from the 1950's by Kay Selig. The strapless bodice is hand-embroidered with floral appliques and pearl beading. The long silk skirt featured gathering on one side and a very full sweep with yards and yards of silk that move while you walk. The dress is lined with rear metal zip closure and comes with a matching wrap (pictured) and formal velvet hat (not pictured). All three pieces were worn once and then stored in a cedar chest for over 50 years. The ensemble is in unbelievable condition and doesn't look worn! This dress should fit a modern size XS-S. Measurements: Bust: 34" Waist: 24.5" Length: 52"
