This truly magnificent 1950’s evening gowns, in the softest shade of French Lilac, embellished with sparkling iridescent sequins, is the perfect piece for that special occasion.
Her wide shoulder straps frame the rounded neckline and set of the fitted bodice, elaborately decorated with sewn sparkling sequins. Her cinched in waist line, sets off the wonderful drape of the silk organza, in a wonderfully full skirt, which boasts an internal cotton petticoat, which can be starched for added internal structure in the skirt. The elaborate sequin embellishments trail down the gown, catching the light perfectly with every swish of silk organza.
