This New York designer made the most elegant evening gowns in glamorous lines and svelte jersey knit. This formal dress has a very contemporary goddess-like appeal, made in the 60s with a plunge V-neck, sculpted knot, and draped ties at the Empire bodice. It's lean and luxurious with very full Hollywood style bishop sleeves, an A-line skirt and hand-finishing. Faced in jersey to the bodice and lined in rayon faille through the silk.

Mushroom gray jersey knit, feels like silk though it's probably rayon, thin and fine with a heavy high-quality drape; matching silky rayon faille skirt lining
Center back synthetic zipper with hook/eye at top
Barely worn, has a faint few picks at left bust just beside the knot and below the drape, would be barely noticed when worn, overall beautiful
