Unique 1950s black and gold brocade ball gown
Unique 1950s black satin and gold brocade ball gown! This the heaviest dress I have ever worn! It has two thick layers of calico plus a thick layer of black satin for the full skirt. The calico also covers the inside of the boned bodice and I think the dress was originally a bustier dress as it looks like the straps were added later. There is also a label under one of the straps and I can't quite read what it says but it starts with Elisabeth.
I haven't washed or dry cleaned this dress as the outside is in very good condition, however, the calico skirt has a few marks as you can see in the images.
Bust: 34 inch
Waist: 26 inch
