#3325 - c. 1950's Platinum Satin, Lace, Organza "Grace Kelly" Gown! I can't figure out why no clothing manufacturer has re-created the Grace Kelly gown from "Rear Window". I look for that everywhere... but find nothing! However, I did find this in my exhaustive search! Has the right shape! And frankly is nearly as beautiful! The color is a light beige with grayish tinge. Very pretty color. I call it "Platinum". Someone else called it "Champagne". Satin halter with lace, bows and ribbon. Dropped waistline, but still fitted to the figure. The dress itself is a strapless design, and it's the lace which creeps up from the bodice into a modified halter with sweet collar. A satin ribbon drops from the bow at mid collar down the front and hangs 1/2 down the skirt to another little bow! If you want, the ribbon could be removed, but why mess up this designer gown? The skirt is covered with matching color organza. Measures: 34" bust, 25" waist, 31" long from natural waist to hem. The dress has been taken in about 2" at the sides, so if you want, you can let out... but you will likely see the old seaming lines in this fabric.
