This charming gown was custom made for a lovely post war bride about 1948. It buttons up the front instead of down the back. There are 28 tiny covered buttons with loops. High neck has shaped ruffle collar. The long sleeves are puffed and taper to ruffled wrist fastened with four buttons and loops. Dropped waist comes to a point at front and back. Gown has a very full skirt...five widths of fabric makes it quite elegant. This gown is what was called 'waltz' length coming to near mid-calf, about nine inches from the floor. The fabric is cream faille taffeta. There are should pads but they can be removed. Seams are generous and there is room to move the buttons. There is also a side zipper.
I think this dress has many possibilities...shortened to just above the knee, sleeves re-shaped or cut short, even removed would give the gown a new contempory life. I love the innocence this dress portrays!
Condition is excellent. There are a few light stains near the bottom of one of the back panels. They disappear in the folds. Dress has been stored in a cedar chest for all these years.
