1960s Mr Blackwell Gold Brocade Gown

Love this simple yet dramatic gold silk brocade fitted gown by Mr Blackwell. It has classic line that are cut to follow a girls curve. A simple scooped back and a low back give it a bit of added sexiness. Love the sweet little bow at the dip of the back V. It is a good wearable size and well made - parts of the hem are weighted!

Lined in a nude silky rayon and closes with a back painted metal zipper. There is some loss to the vertical threads here and there - it presents well but upon close inspection you can see areas where only the cross threads are present. Priced accordingly and has tons of wear left so is a smoking bargain!

Bust: 18" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 15" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: to 20" flat across from side seam to side seam
Length: 54" from neck to hem
