Beautiful 1950s Norman Norell off white gown -not quite ivory but more of a neutral toned off white, not a bright white. This was originally worn as an engagement dress and would make a lovely wedding dress! This dress has short puffed sleeves with pin tuck pleating details, a peter pan collar, button closures up the front, more pin tuck pleating along the chest and back of gown, a cinched waist with hundreds of little pleats and an ultra full skirt with more intricate pin tucks. Side zipper closure. Underskirt of horse hair crinoline gives the skirt great volume. I believe the fabric is silk faille - it's more stiff and structured than satin and it doesn't wrinkle and has a heavier feel to it.

MEASUREMENTS:

fits like: extra small (please use measurements for exact fit)

bust: up to 38"

waist: 25" (the crinoline is 24" but could be adjusted with string closures to accommodate another inch)

hip: 41"

length: 53" (original owner had it hemmed slightly shorter)

brand/label/maker: Traina Norell (Norman Norell)

condition: Excellent vintage condition with the following to note: 1 slight spot on the front of the skirt that gets lost within the pleating and I don't find noticeable, there are a few very very slight scattered spots on the bust but it's hard to see unless you search for them. Faint ghosting mark under one underarm - again very hard to see. And a faint ghosting mark on the back of upper dress that is also hard to notice. Overall presents beautifully! There is a faint yellowing to a few parts where where the belt would be, so this would be covered up with a belt. (see detailed photos) This is missing the original belt but there are numerous options that would look lovely - I will leave that up to the next owner!
