60s Red Velvet Ball Gown • XS/S

Regular price $175.00 Sale

Stunning velvet and satin ball gown dated 1963, with subtle bustle in back of skirt and at sides of hips - created by gathered and layered fabric. In the back there are two layers of satin “handkerchiefing” beginning at lower back. On the sides, there are layers of ruched satin panels and additionally lifting the hips up and out is a bunch of crinoline underneath gathered here at the hips. Lovely details that don’t detract from the sweeping simplicity of this gorgeous gown - including a scoop neck almost off the shoulders and small sleeves with curved slits. The dress needs a professional press for the wrinkles and a small section of hem needs to be rehemmed. Otherwise, this dress is in perfect condition. 
bust 38” • waist 25” • hips full • shoulder to skirt hem 59.5”
