This elegant gown was inspired by a 1940's era slip that I inherited from my great grandmother. The gathered v neck and inverted v empire line create such a beautiful shape and flatter the figure so nicely! I thought it was a shame to keep such a lovely design under wraps, so I adapted the design to a gown similar to the daring evening gowns worn by Ava Gardner. It features a deep V surplice neckline, x straps with plunging back, curved seam mermaid skirt with a sweep train, and pearl embellished trim at the empire line. The gown is made of luxurious silk charmeuse, and lined with habotai silk. With its graceful lines and exquisite details this dress is the definition of sophisticated glamor.

Please note: samples are sold as is, and buyer is responsible for alterations. Since the samples have been worn for a photo shoot, they may have some slight signs of wear and tear, but nothing that compromises their appearance.

Regular price, made to measurements: 1000
Each of my gowns is made to order, so please allow 3-5 weeks. Since women don't come in generic shapes and sizes, I make the gown to your exact measurements rather than set dress sizes. This ensures as close a fit as possible, however you may still need to have slight alterations made because there's no substitute for doing a fitting in person. Please convo me if you are interested and provide an e-mail address and I will send you instructions for taking the measurements.
