BILL BLASS Silk Velvet Illusion Bodice Evening Dress

Lot 0020
Black silk velvet vintage gown from Bill Blass features devore (also called burnt velvet) illusion bodice and sleeves. This elegant dress zips to the waist and then fastens up the back with two buttons that are about nine-inches apart. Cuffs have three-button closures. Solid velvet portion of the dress is fully lined in black silk. The seams in the illusion bodice are reinforced with nude-colored silk. I thought I glimpsed a small flaw on the inside lining, but when I looked for it again, I couldn't find it - so I think it's fair to say it's "not significant." Size 8.


- Shoulders measure 14.5"
- Chest is 33" measured between underarms and doubled.
- Waist is about 29"
- Hips are 36"
- Length is 59" measured down center back.

Condition: Pre-owned in excellent condition with no significant flaws.
