About

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.

Bust: 34"
