fab 1970's SILVER GOWN and PANTS set 70's sparkle party S (D8)
Platinum silver dress and pants set, a one-owner set from the early 1970's! Sparkly Lurex metallic threads, hand washable. The intricate 'beading' is actually teeny gray and silver bits that are technically glued on. They hold up very well, I had soaked this for several hours, and they all held on! :) The zip-front closure on the dress-jacket can zip from the top or bottom, but is not meant to unzip completely. So you can't wear this totally open. Front slit is 20.5" hem to zipper start when zipped completely.The neckline is high, and class with hook/eye, leaving a little open 'keyhole' peep. The pants underneath are wide-leg, with a back zip closure. The condition is great for it's age... There is some mild yellowing in the underarms (had greatly improved with it's long soak, but still there a little bit), and a touch of wear in the underarm seams. It is very mild, and gets lost in the natural shimmer of the fabric, so no one will ever notice. Picture 10 shows the sleeve hem notches are supposed to be about 1.5", but have opened a bit more. I did not stitch shut, because I actually preferred the notches open to this level... I wonder if I could have gotten my hand in without them?! I will leave them as-is for now, and let you as the new owner decide how you want to wear it. This fits me perfectly as a 4, although the pants are a little short... please compare the measurements below with pieces you have at home that fit well.
