No, it’s not a dress for Siamese elephants – this is a first-ever-seen hostess/cocktail one-piece “thing” with embroidered and sequined mesh over lined satin pants and bodice. Not exactly a jumpsuit, though it has those elements. I’m going to say early 1960’s, but it could be earlier.
This is a well-tailored garment with long panels front and back which are completely open at the sides. The upper part of the bodice is lined with flesh-tone mesh, also. Extremely well-made, with two labels – the brand and the store which sold it.
To be worn with a pair of black sandals or mules and, of course, diamonds . . . . . . . . . . . . .
More to come.
