In this gorgeous 1950's hand-painted colorful floral gown, the detailed construction and meticulous attention to detail are comparable to what you will find in modern couture. This captivating garment is fashioned from double layered silk organza in an ethereal ivory color. The hand-painted floral motif gives the garment so much depth and interest. This workmanship alone must have taken weeks. The bodice has a flattering sculpted nipped-waist backless design. I love the dramatic three-dimensional side flower appliqué The chic asymmetric full skirting, made up of any least ten yards of silk, flows over the fitted hourglass wiggle skirt in a perfect "Old Hollywood" style. A pure work of art and a study in dressmaking technique. Breathtaking and timeless.
