The breathtaking 1940's metallic-gold novelty leaf motif lame used for this P.A Ber Couture Paris ensemble has a regal quality that I find irresistible! The bodice has a seductive one-shoulder sweetheart plunge with fantastic pleating. That beautiful design flows into an asymmetric draped sash. The skirting is added in pointed inset seamed pieces typical of the time period and insanely hard to do on lame fabric. This figure flattering garment accentuates the bust, skims the hip and flares out below the knee in classic "Old Hollywood" style. The stylized charm of the matching bolero jacket personify the feminine ideal in clothing. A hard-to-find seductive ensemble perfect for any modern event!
