This is a stunning vintage formal evening party dress or wedding gown from the 1950's to 1960's. It's perfect for either occasion! Made of an ivory rayon liner with layers of ruched sheer white chiffon. Possibly nylon or rayon chiffon but there are no labels. It's a very find sheer netting (see photos), soft and very nice quality! This dress is truly gorgeous & so feminine! A true princess fairy tale wedding dress! The bodice is fitted with boning inside, darts, a white metal zipper in back. Delicate layers of ruched chiffon on the outside. It fits the bodice nice & snug for a flattering sexy fit then the skirt flares out with tons of layers just like a princess! It fit's our mannequin like a glove & has some stretch to it for a nice fit. The skirt is made of 3 layers: the 1st bottom rayon ivory solid liner, then a sheer chiffon netting layer, then the top layer made of tiers of chiffon all the way down with little delicate ruffles at the seams. This style vintage gowns are impossible to find these days & would make a true fantasy evening or wedding gown!
