This ’20’s – style dress was made in the 1970’s and was probably intended to be a wedding gown. The design is actually a hybrid ’20’s/’40’s in some ways. As marginal as the 1970’s were with regard to quality fashion (in my opinion), I have found some vintage-inspired garments made during that decade that were pretty cool.
This dress has never been worn – still has a paper inventory tag fastened inside the left sleeve. Also, there are care and content tags, but no maker’s label.
It seems fairly well-made and is an interesting design. I find it intriguing as a curiosity, mostly, and would put it in the category of the Gunne Sax dresses of that time, many of which were styled after antique fashions.
Was this the remnant of a wedding that never happened, or just dead stock? I wonder.. . . . you just never know . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..
