Hi again and thank you for your help with my previous inquiry. I've just found this lovely gown and am unsure about its age. Here are some details: - custom made, no tags - this is a full length gown with draping/ruching on the bodice and a full circle skirt made out of a couple of panels - fabric is super lightweight silk (chiffon?) with small patches woven in that have more lustre than the rest of the fabric and there are tiny fringes at the ends of the patches (please see photos, it's hard to explain) --by the way, how would you call this one? - lining is acetate - zipper has been replaced (different thread was used to sew it in than used on the rest of the whole garment, also you can see the lining had been unpicked to remove the old zipper and then sewn in again with the new thread) - zig-zagged edges on the inside - grosgrain tape waist-stay - braided straps with same fabric backing Overall, this looks 1970s to me mostly based on the fabric but I researched 70s gowns and I'm not so sure this style was fashionable? I'm not very good at dating formal dresses like this one so I wanted to ask your expert opinion. Please let me know if I can take better pics or describle something else.
