Vintage 1980s Custom Silk Satin Charmeuse Gown, Large

Vintage 1980s Custom Silk Satin Charmeuse Gown, Large

This is a very unique dress that was custom made for the original owner. It's made from a luxurious silk charmeuse jacquard, striped in bronze and black with colourful abstract flowers in purple, blue and green. It features leg of mutton sleeves with a large panelled V over the bodice. It features two large bows on top of the shoulders, and a lace panel at the centre front neck. The skirt is knife pleated and falls to the ankles. The back has a dipped V neckline and zips up at the centre.

The fabric of this dress is very beautiful and could be repurposed. The "wrong side" of the fabric is brightly checked in purple, green and blue, with bronze and black flowers. 

COLOUR: Brown, Black, Purple, Blue, Green.

MATERIAL: Silk Charmeuse. Lined in synthetic

LABEL: No label, custom made.

✂--- Allow for some ease.

Bust: 38 in. (97 cm)
Waist: 32 in. (81 cm)
Hip: 50 in. (127 cm) 
Sleeve Length: 24.5 in. (61 cm)
Top of shoulder to Waist: 15.5 in. (39 cm)
Waist to Hem: 38 in. (97 cm) 
Total Length: 53.5 in. 

CONDITION: Good condition overall but there are some issues. There is a small 1.5 in hole on the fold line of the hem and the fabric is fraying in a few areas along the foldline. We would recommend hemming the dress up another inch or so, or at least to suit your height to prevent the fabric hem from wearing out more. There is a small fabric hole just an inch above the edge of the hem where the silk wore out. Some underarm stains on the lining, not visible to the outside. The hem is unstitched in a few areas, it will likely need to be re-hemmed to a shorter length to suit the wearer so we have not fixed it. The overlay bodice panel needs to be resewn to the edge of the neckline.
