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.
