Vintage early 60s Mike Benet Formals princess cut ball gown with sequin & beaded details. Probably fits like a modern XS or S. Good lookin but has some condition issues. Needs creative TLC or overdye due to underarm stains. Could just be a cool display piece and put a shawl around it.
Was found on original dry cleaning hanger stuffed with tissue, so it was put away clean and closet stored. Has not been recently cleaned though. Doesnt have a fabric content tag but looks like a heavy satin. Pre owned, overall very nice condition besides the obvious underarm discoloration. It was definitely dry cleaned, so could be in part due to old dry cleaning chemicals.I dont see any holes or rips but there is some discoloration in areas throughout. Mainly on the bottom of the dress and a spot inside the lining near the tag. Nothing that really pops out at you besides the underarms. There is a hook and eye near the zipper and the eye thread is broken off.
Shown on a womens size small mannequin. I could not get the zipper shut on the mannequin- so this probably fits like an XS... The lady who owned this was really tiny and a cheerleader / majorette. Please review photos and message with any questions. Dress is very bulky & heavy...
17 pit to pit fully stretched - but darted in the front for more room. 12 across waist fully stretched - so 24 or 25 waist. 75 across bottom - full sweep.
