1950s Green Cotton Summer Gown w/ Ethnic Ribbon
item WE00076

Custom gown, made for the wife of a diplomat living in Afghanistan. Vivid green semi-sheer cotton is outlined with green, yellow, and red embroidered wide ribbon. A lot of hours - and fabric - went into the construction of this dress. True surplice bodice with a figure-enhancing drape (but you can see that...). Circumference of hem is approx 220" (yes, over 18 feet). Bodice is lined in green cotton, as is skirt. Side zip, self belt that we have pictured buckled in the back.

The bodice was pressed a bit too aggressively long ago - dry cleaning improved it, there are lighter areas with a bit more sheen, but of course still very wearable, and the only reason rated as "very good" and not "excellent" (we're fussy).
