This sublime vintage 1960s evening gown is in deep, dark kingfisher blue chiffon.
Wide bateau neckline, v-shaped back and stunning heavily beaded bodice with exquisite floral design in blue faux pearls, silver and pearly white glass beads and transparent blue droplet beads.
Lovely beaded floral detail to the waist, meeting in a v at the front. Layered inverted pleat to the centre front skirt.
Fully lined in blue acetate fabric with a metal zip fastening to the centre back.
Comes with the original matching shawl with beaded details to the corners.
best fit a modern UK 12/small 14

Over all in very good vintage condition with all beadwork intact. On close inspection there are a few tiny marks, but nothing serious. Small 2mm hole to the front left hip and a small tear to the chiffon at the hem of the inverted pleat, but this is underneath so does not notice.
Please note, the blue tone is darker and less cyan in reality than the photos indicate.
