Original 1940s 40s Vintage Gold Lamé Evening Gown Dress
This wonderful dress was made from a heavy quality brocade with gold lamé embroidery in the 1940s. The sweetheart neckline is framed by pretty pleats which are mirrored along the extended shoulder line. The high waist glamorously extends down to full length skirt. The entirety of the dress is decorated with leafs and flowers in a gold lamé thread. A triple gold lamé leaf, which hangs from the lower back (just below the metal zipper), elegantly conceals the press stud fastenings to the left buttock. The bust section of the gown is lined in silk for additional wearing comfort.
The dress is in good condition with only some minor loose lame threads as pictured as well as some slight discolouration to the right underarm and a small mark at the bust. There are two small buttonholes at the bust, which may have had a decorative tie or bustle at some point to gather the bust.
