This striking 1950s Jaques Heim evening gown showcases some impeccable tailoring. The dress is of starched black cotton and styled to flatter a classic hourglass silhouette. Wide angled straps graduate to a gentle décolletage neckline with a skilful fold in the fabric over the centre bust, bringing each breast to a point. The bodice draws in neatly towards the waist, where there is a bow to the right in juxtaposition to a matching bow at the base of the left shoulder strap. The skirt is lined with a tired sateen petticoat and the overlay is lined with starched fabric to ensure the crisp line of the skirt. Two folds of fabric cross over the naval and widening at an A line towards the hem. There is a central zip fastening at the reverse. In excellent condition, would best suit US size 2-4, UK size 6-8.
