70s Gothic Revival Gown
Be still my cold heart! This vintage 1970s prairie dress seems to have been given a gothic makeover sometimes in the 90s. Is she a halloween costume, a wedding dress, a theatrical prop? She has the potential to be many things! Rich black ruffling on neck and sleeves with flattering bodice pleats and extra long train. Half back zipper and 6 button neck clasp.
Measurements of garment, allow space for fit.
Taken flat, doubled for circumference
Shown on a size 4 dress form
Modern Size Estimate: XS, Small
Length: 56” with train 69.5”
Condition: Very good vintage. Her gothic makeover was amateur so there are some dye splotches and inconsistencies. The neck ruffling did not take the dye in some places where there appears to be adhesive. Back buttons mismatched. Overall structurally sound and a really unique piece!
