Sorry, this item has sold.

Vintage 1940s Silk Chantilly Lace Gown with fishtail and panelled styling which has 8 individual panels.
These panels are set in from the thigh, to give a defined ‘flipping out’ look as the lady walks.

It’s the most gorgeous sensual nude wiggle dress I have seen- Magnificent, and with a very colourful past!

Stunning and uniquely designed by a Paris Fashion House it’s an absolute beauty of a gown. Part of a consignment of clothes from a private fashion collection in North Yorkshire

The creation is mostly hand finished, including the hem of the dress and the darting to the bodice.
This is a beautiful garment, perfect for the cocktail hour, and those very special boudoir nights.
Made from a beautiful sea blue silk.
The gown requires from the wearer a certain amount of panache as it is quite revealing and is intended to compliment the female form.
The wearer needs quite an amount of courage!!! Or……you can wear it over an under slip.

The measurements given are actual, from seam to seam and are given as a guide and we’re taken when the fabric was relaxed. The fabric does have about 2-4” of stretch.

Please compare these measurements against a similar garment of your own.
This is a pull over the head garment-there are no zips or buttons

Guide Size; 10-12
Front Length; 48”
Back Length; 52”
Underarm to underarm; 36”
Waist; 30”-36”
Hips; 36”- 40”
The sleeves (balloon style) 23”

The fabric is extremely stretchy and will give a good few inches but please remember that if the fabric is stretched some of the length will be lost.

Please drop me a line if further assistance is required
