Item details

Vintage from the 1940s


rayon faille, Lightning metal zipper, metal hooks and eyes, petersham, threaded belt loops

Stunning late 40s, early 50s halter evening gown in a lustrous black faille with an added, extra long and wide, train and back pouff. It has a long metal Lightning side zipper with hooks and eyes at top and at the waist as well as an interior petersham. There are two threaded belt loops, but the original belt is missing. Unlined, no labels, most likely homemade and well made. Fabulous gown that is sure to turn a few heads.

Notes: 1) belt does not come with dress. 2) first 3 photos the pouff had some stuffing to show detail.

Material content label: none and we believe the lustrous fabric to be a rayon faille.

Size label: none and we estimate this will best fit a current US size small 4, possibly 6.
