1960s Bosand Net Blue Gown with Cape

This is a fantastic and romantic gown and capelet set by Alfred Bosand. Made from a a beautiful pale ice blue silk net that has been embroidered with little flowers throughout. It has a high turn of the century empire goddess that has hints of ancient Greece in its cut. The fabric is gathered in a formed high bodice with little straps. The skirt cascades from there to the floor with a panel of chocolate dyed netting to anchor it. An extra layer of tulle is under the top layer and the inner skirt is a sensual feeling silk. The skirt is not too full nor too slim. A matching capelet made of netting and embroidery picks up the gown's hem and is the perfect feminine finish. A really lovely and pretty set that is also well made! Excellent condition
