Beautifully made late 1960s or early 1970s evening maxi in autumn colors. Browns, oranges, and deep teal green floral on a semi-sheer fabric with alternating plisse and smooth stripes, highlighted with gold metallic thread. Subtly sparkle enhanced by the domed pave rhinestone buttons. Full front placket. Snap and hook&eye at waist. Nicely finished with soft lining everywhere but the sleeves, hem and waist tape, lingerie stays, and hand-finished bound buttonholes. From the Pam A. collection.

Fiber/Care: unmarked, feels like a rayon blend with cotton lining and Lurex thread, dry-clean
Condition: there is minor staining on the lining only, at the upper back (see photos). the original belt is missing. our thin gold belt s is not included, but any number of colors and styles would coordinate nicely. you could also just snip the thread loops and go without.
*We've had this gown professionally dry-cleaned and it's ready to wear.*
hips: free (50+")
Clipped just a bit for the photos to fit Delphine.
