# 9351 - c. late 1950's/ early 1960's RUTH VARLAN, Jo Robinson, Delaware Blue Raw Silk Gown with Woven Gold "Indian Sari" Design!   One of the last dresses from the Dupont estate collection.  Simple shape design fitted square neck sleeveless bodice and slightly gathered long skirt with gorgeous woven gold, turquoise and teal "sari" design at lower skirt.  Many of her gowns were designed with a similar look.... Mainbocher popularized the Indian sari fabrics in the 1950s.  In Excellent condition with the exception of one teeny little mark on the breast (see photo) and ever so slight fading??  Or just normal to the raw silk fabric.  Still a 9.8 outta 10.  Measures: up to 39" bust, 17" from shoulder to waist (long waisted - or room for ample breasts), 40" long from waist to hem.   Back metal zipper.  Lined in a OH so SOFT silk!  Feels great.    NEW LISTING!   Also Listed in the 1930/40 -Today Category.

# 9459 - c. 1960's COUNTESS ALEXANDER, New York / Jo Robinson Inc., Wilmington Floral Silk Chiffon Gown!  Lovely, well-made gown! Hard to photograph the details as it's floral chiffon fabric over the same floral silk fabric! But in person this gives a very expensive look. The sleeves and the upper bodice are the same floral see-through chiffon as the upper layer skirt. Tiny, short standup collar. Great heavy hemline detail. Excellent condition... looks like it was never worn! 7/8 length sleeves with cuffs (great to show off your pearl bracelet). Back zipper. Measures: 38" bust, 31" waist, up to 47" hips, 42" long from waist to hem.  Also Listed in the 1930/40-Today Category.

# 9493 - c. 1960's ROSSINO-ANGELA Turquoise Silk Satin Gown with Flocked Velveteen Flowers! Ever wonder what the rich women wore in the 1960s? When the rest of us were wearing torn jeans and fringed leather, the socialites were wearing gorgeous, vibrant gowns like this. Brilliant turquoise silk satin printed gown covered with hot pink/purple flocked velveteen flowers. Bell shaped lower sleeves, "u" neckline to allow for a necklace, and wide waistband belt. Back zipper. Silk lined. Measures: 40" bust, 31" waist, 40" long from waist to hem. Excellent condition.  Also Listed in the 1930/40-Today Category.

# 9488 - c. 1960's RUTH VARLAN Purple/Blue Sari Silk Gown with Woven Silver Embroidery! Of the entire collection from the DuPont Estate, I picked five pieces that are my personal favorites. This is one. I suppose if pressed, I would choose this one as my "American Idol" dress. Changeable sari silk in a purple/blue hue with silver woven embroidery in all the right places. Back metal zipper. With original belt. Measures: 38" bust, 30" waist, 26" long from waist to hem. Excellent condition with minor pulls and if you look closely, a couple of minor small spots, but damn it's gorgeous!!  Also Listed in the 1930/40-Today Category.

SOLD
# 9468 - c. 1960's Printed Chiffon with Gold "Chains" Gown! Here's a unique fabric! Hard to even describe. Tribal psychedelic? The printed chiffon part is easy, but then there are flat gold "chains" in the material. They don't look like embroidery, and they aren't heavy at all.. so what the heck are they?? Just look at the close-up photos to see. I'll let you tell me! Fun gown with a 4-layer skirt which opens at the front to appear like an overskirt billowing in the breeze.. but it's all attached, and only at the front to sides. The bodice has decorative frogs down front. Back metal zipper. Lined in hot pink silk. Measures: 30" waist, 59" long from shoulders to hem.

SOLD
# 9476a - c. 1960's Jo Robinson Inc., Wilmington Royal Blue Chinese Silk Satin Brocade Gown with Lighter Blue "Tail"!  Another garment from the Dupont estate! From Jo Robinson of Delaware where most of her clothes came from.  I believe many were custom made for Mrs. Dupont, often with Oriental or Indian fabrics.  Simple shape gown with unexpected lower "v" back.  Short sleeves.  The design element is the lighter blue but nicely matching waistband with attached long sash "tail" at back with a hem of fringed yarn!!  Back zipper. Measures:  37" bust, up to 30" waist, 58" long from shoulder to hem, 41" long from waist to hem. Excellent condition.
