CEIL CHAPMAN Rhinestoned Evening Dress! Zowie! I buy Ceil Chapman dresses and gowns because I love them. However this one "takes the cake". Best I've seen to date! Brilliant Floral Rhinestone design decorates the bodice and cascades diagonally down the skirt to the hem with a scalloped edge!! All on an ecru silk satin base. Pouf skirt with additional diagonal pleating. Spaghetti straps. Excellent condition. A rare quality designer dress. Measures: 33" bust, 24" waist, with perhaps 1/2" to be let out, 27" long from waist. Back zipper, Crinoline under skirt.
SOLD - but on display in Museum Category for Research/Study
