- Voluminous Yellow Chiffon 1950's 1960's Ball Gown w/ Taffeta Bustle
A lovely, sunny 1960's ball gown in yellow nylon. Heart shaped, pleated bodice with spaghetti straps and two yellow roses (I think the roses were a modern addition). Magnificent, ball gown skirt with a large acetate drape/bow at the rear (shown here with a small bridal hoop... not included, but widely availabale for purchase at a bridal store). Rear metal zipper (please note that the zipper is fully functional, the dress was simply too snug for the form). Lined in acetate.
Size: 32" bust, 23" waist, free hips. Approximately 60" from shoulder to hem.
Condition: In good condition. Overall looks crisp and lovely. There are a few tiny spots/smudges along the hem. A pull at the edge of the drape on each side (around the height of the base of the zipper... possible the bow was originally here?). Some stress around the zipper. A smudge on the edge of each strap.
