Simply the finest the 1950s has to offer...exquisite tailoring and styling....bombshell sex appeal combined with Greek Goddess elegance; very fitted pencil skirt topped with a draped, sarong style overskirt, which snaps and closes at the left waist. The bodice is finely ruched / gathered in an unusual diagonal pattern, long side metal zipper. I have had a few Irene gowns in the past; the interior construction and styling of this cocktail parfait is very, very similar; light boning, impeccable inner fabrication...perfect workmanship in every regard. There is no label; this came from the estate of a wine country heiress...her other garments included two Irene pieces, many items from Paris, many custom designed....no expense spared, and every item an iconic fashion gem. In near perfect, immediately wearable condition. Color is a rich , strong, steely pewter grey.....hematite. Quite petite....even a bit small on my mannequin.

This item, laid flat, measures: Bust: 34"

Waist: 21-22"

Hips: 34"

Total Length: Shoulder to waist, 15" Waist to Hem, 24"

I do ship internationally.....exact rates to be determined at the time of purchase.

All items are described as accurately as possible, and measurements are taken very carefully….please make sure your measurements are at least 1” less than those of the garment, for proper fit, drape and movement.
