Description

From the later period (late 60s/early 70s) of Hollywood costumer and designer Helen Rose -- "the Queen of Chiffon"

This gorgeous gown is structurally sound. But it has several stains of dubious origin. I don't currently have a local dry cleaner I trust enough to clean chiffon, so I'm selling it as-is. A pro should be able to blow out the stains and freshen it up. Please see photos for details.

It is in stunning condition other than the stains and over-all dingy look and odor from being in storage-- and the rhinestone brooch could use a few stitches to secure it in place more neatly.

The details:
* Pale blue lining with luxurious, ethereal chiffon overlay
* Maxi length
* Grecian styling
* Sweetheart illusion neckline has pale blue chiffon over a layer of nude chiffon
* Long, poofy sleeves.
* Adjustable up to 1" at the shoulders with snaps-- a true couture touch!
* Empire waist with braided chiffon and rhinestone brooch
*Braided tie at waist
* The circular brooch has HUGE sparkly rhinestones and is a show piece on its own!

If you aren't familiar with Helen Rose, she was the go-to designer for Hollywood stars in the 50s & 60s. She designed wedding gowns for the likes of Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor, as well as several iconic outfits from classic movies.
Please note!! Although she was "the Queen of Chiffon", this gown is *NOT* silk chiffon. It is synthetic chiffon, but it is the finest, floatiest synthetic chiffon you've ever touched!

Measurements:
Bust 38"
Waist 31"
Hips open
Length 58"
Sleeve 26"
Shoulder to shoulder - adjustable from 15" to 16"
