1970s Metallic Gold Evening Dress with Balloon Sleeves
This dress is extraordinary! Textile is silk lamé with a metallic gold design, the skirt is lined in silk. There is a matching sash, 44" long, that can worn as a belt or in the hair. The dress is a wrap and closes at the waist only. The sleeves are batwing style, completely open from the waist to the shoulder, and they maintain that fullness to the ruffle cuff. The bust closes with a snap that was added by the original owner, it could be removed for a more dramatic neckline. The skirt is slim and long with a 9" overlap. Dress could be easily altered to accommodate a larger or smaller waist by an inch or so in either direction. An absolutely stunning piece that is sure to turn heads!
Condition Details: Very Good: The textile snags very easily and should be handled with care. There are several snags and pulls present, this is the nature of this textile and should be expected. The silk lining of the sash is starting to shatter. These issues do not affect the overall look or wearability, the dress presents beautifully!
