♛Details

•Highlights: a show-stopping stage-worn garment from the collection of a real diva who performed live back in the day, one of a small group we are fortunate enough to be able to share; each one is different from the next; custom-sewn and one-of-a-kind;

massive volume; silk layered over pale chiffon; double-layered sleeve (kimono style and then a longer chiffon peeking out with long narrow bishop sleeve that zippers closed); jaw-dropping sweep; intricately layered and so detailed; hand-beaded in aurora borealis sequins, glass beads, faux pearls; VERY sparkly in person so prepare to be dazzled

wear to lounge in, take it on the town, or wear this magnetic piece on stage!

don't miss! you'll NEVER see another like it, full of such pure magic and good karma

•Fabric(s): silk and nylon or silk chiffon with lace

•Lined: yes

•Closures: metal snap, each cuff has a beautiful vintage zipper closure with vintage pull

•Designer/Labels: no, this is custom-sewn to high standards

♛Measurements

Fits many as it drapes to fit; dress form shown is a modern 0 and this also fit me fine as a size 4. Meant to be worn loose and flowing! Please budget room for fit and ease and any clothing layered under it.

Bust (underarm area measured flat on exterior, then doubled) most up to about 48" (estimated on a hanger...it's not easy to measure)

Waist unfitted

Hips unfitted

Length about 60"

Shoulders - no seams

Sleeves about 24" and will grip at the bishop cuff and puddle beautifully

♛Condition

Very good vintage condition. Cleaned. 50+ years old and ready to rock.

I see some threads sticking out of the beading here and there, but I don't actually see any missing beading. There are hundreds if not thousands of individually-sewn elements, so there certainly might be. Slight overall signs of wear, character, and use, all of which can be inspected closely in photos...this was stage-worn and is full of good energy.

The single snap at the lapel area is intact but I couldn't get it to work...easy to replace if you wanted. Sold preserved as she was found.
