1970s Beaded Bob Mackie One Shoulder Gown

This is a stunning Bob Mackie that has his signature glitz and glam on the bodice but shows off his talent in working in fine silks on a bias cut. Made of a bias cut slipper satin silk, it is a very sexy one shoulder silhouette. On the upper portion of the bodice is a 12" wide beautiful overlay made of tube & round beads on silk net. It gives the dress an extra instant dose of high glamor and is almost like wearing a huge piece of jewelry wrapped around you. The silk underneath is cut on the bias and is seamed like a couture piece from the thirties. This gives it a beautiful drape so the fabric glides over the body and is extremely flattering! This is a stunning example of his work and even more beautiful in person. Excellent condition

Self backed fabric and closes with a side nylon & metal zipper. Note the color has a slightly deeper blue in person. There is very very slight scuffing to the fabric here and there - it is not apparent when on but you do see it when it is lying flat and spread out. Because it is bias cut it will drape to fit the body under it.

Bust: 15-17.5" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 14-16" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: open due to the bias cut
Length: 60" from top of shoulder to longest point of front hem, 64" to longest point of the back
