1940's French Couture Pink Silk-Chiffon & Black Lace Scalloped Gown & Capelet
The breathtaking 1940's blush pink silk-chiffon and black chantilly-lace used for this French couture ensemble has an ethereal quality that I find irresistible. The fully boned bodice has elegant ruffle trim with smocked scalloped shaping. The work is so gorgeous, I wouldn't be surprised to learn this garment was a Jean Patou or Maggy Rouff haute couture creation. The dramatic full-length skirting is voluminous and ends with a unique bubbled hemline. This figure flattering garment accentuates the bust, skims the hip and flares out in classic "Old Hollywood" style. The stylized charm of the matching cropped capelet bolero jacket personify the feminine ideal in clothing. A hard-to-find enchanting ensemble perfect for any modern event.
