Brocade pouf gown
A witty replaying of 1950's-1960 's haute silhouettes made out of luxurious & lovely textiles.
Boned, shaped bodice and column underskirt are a plush, black silk velvet. (Velvet is lined in a puffy-thick black silk charmeuse from bust to toes.) Delicate, flower-petal-shaped scallops delineate neck, waist and lower hem. Asian, ivory, silk charmeuse, "embossed" brocade overskirt is tailored into a puff silhouette by itself --- no bulky tulle or organdy petticoats needed.
Boning and an inner grosgrain belt hold top secure. Overskirt is lined in a sheer ivory silk.
Label has been removed but finishing work is immaculate and marks this as high end.
size & fit- sm/med
bodice (shoulder-to-waist): 9"
Highly-wearable & in beautiful shape. No exterior holes, stains or fading.
