In an iconic early to mid-1960’s style, this true vintage gown went to some kind of special occasion. The sheath style with embroidered overlay was extremely popular at the time; very “feminine” and pretty. All the necessary components for this type and vintage of frock are there – a metal zipper, hanging loops, a net underskirt for pouf and other tailoring touches to make the dress hold its shape and fit well. Close examination reveals it to have been custom-made, with some basting seams still inside.
