1980s Multi Color Silk Organza Strapless Gown

The gown is a beautiful silk organza that has a slight iridescent quality to it and a checked plaid pattern that has a fantastic array of vibrant, gorgeous colors. The bodice is fitted and has hand placed gathering, with light boning all through the bust so you are completely supported. The skirt is fantastic - very full and with three built in layers underneath - a silk organza layer, a silk tulle layer and finally, a tissue silk layer edged with stiffening at the hem so that wonderful airy shape is kept. Very beautiful and the colors make you happy just to look at it! A gorgeous, gorgeous gown. Excellent, appears unworn condition!

The dress is fully lined in a hot pink silk and closes with a back painted metal zipper.  Skirts are layered as per description above. Tagged an 8 but please check measurements
