Stunning , shimmering silk party dress from the 1950s. Beautiful fit and flare silhouette with incredible swirling piped and pleated embellishments. The bodice is lined with cotton but the skirt is unlined and would be best with a crinoline that is a little longer than the one I had on hand to use in this photo. The skirt is quite full and would look awesome with a crinoline that would push it out a bit more. Zips up on the side. A show-stopper of a dress by Jerry Gilden. In very good condition - we have not had it drycleaned and there is some minor darkening under that arms that is not distracting at all but I felt should be noted. It is otherwise free of any smells or flaws.
Shown on a size small mannequin and has been clamped in to fit.
