Seller notes: The dress two front panels are hand stitched together which is loose and coming ever so slightly apart due to the weight of the fabric. Some of the intricate front paneling/darting has been restitched at some point in the dresses life, but it has been beautifully done (invisible from the outside) and adds to the charm to see the restitching and tacking - you know it has been looked after.

A beautiful 'Frank Usher London' vintage evening dress, from (I think) the 1940s. The dress is highly tailors with many panels and darts in the skirt and bodice to give the wonderful flare and volume to the skirt I have tried to demonstrate by holding it out for a photo. This looks amazing when the dress is worn, adding drama and movement.

The original metal zipper is in place and working very well. All the original hand stitching and finishing it in place, and in good condition, other than in the front panel where I have described above. The dress has been repaired and maintained beautifully, Nothing is visible to the eye on the outside when worn, and I think that work of this kind adds to the beauty of a garment this old as it becomes part of it's history.

The front of the dress is lined with a fine red synthetic satin. The main fabric is a heavy embroiderede red taffeta with gold, bronze and red herringbone stitching to give the delicate pattern.

If anyone would like additional photos of the pattern or interior please message me and I will do my best.  

I am about 5 feet 4 inches and the dress is ankle length on me. The measurements when laid flat are:

B: 78cm

W: 84cm

The fabric has no give in it so please check it will fit before bidding.
