- Bianchi - Empire Style Vintage Gown In Ivory Peau-de-soie
- Bridal Gown
- High Neck
Gown is true couture: ivory silk with beading and lace embellishment and finished by hand with lace facing on all seams. Dress was made to measure at Bergdorf Goodman in NYC in 1969 after a design worn in the early 19th century. The princess line silhouette in an Empire style features a high neck ruffled collar with hand appliqued bead work that continues as a panel down the center front; 42 covered buttons close the back and all inside seams are edged in lace. Gown has long fitted sleeves with pleated ruffle cuffs. Hemline carries a 4 inch gathered flounce with a short train. The silk, called peau de soie (literally, skin of silk) is rarely seen today. Original cost: $3500 Asking: $895 Because this is made to measure, it is not possible to give a size in the ordinary sense, but 2, 4, and 6 sized women will fit. Bust: 34 Waist: 29 (high, Empire style) Sleeve: 23 Front: 52 Back: 60 There is a matching maid of honor gown also made to measure in green velvet, size 2/4, which I am willing to include for free with the gown.
