@Jumblelaya: according to the original owner, this gorgeous frock is a custom-made vintage costume used in a film set in North Carolina. It's absolutely EXQUISITE and has a wonderful debutante/southern belle aspect to it. She dated it to the 70s, and I reckon it was made from a 1950s pattern. This must have been a dress made for the lead actress, as it's not one that would fade in the background...it must take center stage, and is even more dazzling in person. :)

The Details.

••Designer label: custom-made, very nice quality and finishing
••Fabric: sheer shimmering organdy layered over satin
••Color: a fabulous glowing gold (best views are photo #2 and #5) with pumpkin, teal, bronze, silver hand-painted flowers formed with hand-applied golden cord
••Fitted, princess-seamed bodice, nipped waist, and a full and flirty double-layered skirt that flares to a complete circle at hem
••Hidden back zipper
••Shown over our crinoline, not included, but the same crinoline we use can be purchased separately in our store if desired.

The Measurements.

About a modern S to M, and bodice length seems scaled to fit a petite or junior figure.
Bust (underarm to underarm measured flat, then doubled): 36".
Waist: 28".
Hips: Full/Free.
Shoulder to waist: 14".
Waist to hem: 29".

Note: these are the measurements of the garment itself.
Please allow adequate "wiggle room" for proper fit -- at least an inch is recommended.

The Condition.

This 30+ year old dress is in Excellent shape. It's crisp and very clean, nearly like new. I couldn't find any flaws or issues.
