1950s Beaded Silk Gown


Post 1955 sumptuous silk gown with beautiful beading, fitted bust and strappy back. This gown is extremely well made with acres of soft silk and very well constructed bodice with slight shaping through the bust, (the waist itself is slightly curved to create a lower hip line on the sides of the skirt and higher in the center waist). Union label dating this dress as late 1950s. I do wish there was a designer label -"very "Christian Dior"!- as it is clearly a quality piece with hand-stitched hem and skilled pleats at the lower waist creating the full skirt. Excellent condition with a little minor bead loss. The dress may require an additional press when received as the plentiful silk bunches a little at the hem when the garment is hanging.
