Stunning bias cut blue floral sheer silk fabric in a gorgeous art nouveau style floral. The colours are rich and fabric is clearly marked with the “Emilio” signature. There is also a layer of teal organdy under the top layer and then a crisp turquoise lining in the skirt of the dress. The huge sweeping top hem is hand stitched with tiny neat stitches and the metal zipper has also been sewn in by hand. It is a really exquisite dress as you would expect from a designer item. There is no label which is u fortunate - I think it must have had a jacket or shawl that was labelled. I purchased it at an estate here in Calgary and maybe someone ended up with the other piece if there was one.

Shoulder to waist: 14.5”

Condition: very good, clean condition with no smells or flaws. There is some slight stress to the dart seams near the waist on the bodice front.
