Pink formal gown • c. 1970s • never worn!
Dude! If I were 100 pounds skinnier, I would be swishing around in this gown every day. Wearing fluffy pink maribou-trimmed mules or crystal studded platform sandals. But alas, I'm much less Studio 54 and much more Mrs. Roper. I'm dating it in the '70s. It's definitely got that glamorous dancing queen feel. And it's still got the original tag (size is listed as 14 but I would put at more of a modern 8-10). So either she never wore it, or she wore it that one time and didn't return it. Es scandalo!
The bust of the pink slip dress looks to be a B cup. Underbust measures about 30 inches. The dress flares from the high-waist in a narrow, floor-length A-line. The overlay/caftan hooks around the neck and falls loose over the arms. With rhe exception of the hooks at the neckline, it is loose snd open in the back. While the underdress is on the smaller side, the beaded chiffon overlay is much more one-size-fits-all; it could easily be worn over a different dress.
