This vintage dress is said to have been worn in the 1960 Come Dancing finals by the female of the winning couple. Unfortunately, the documents to verify this have been misplaced. Also, despite a quick search for images and further info on the 1960 champions, I've failed to confim.OK, now about the dress itself. Heavily beaded with Swarovski crystals on the micro pleated skirt and added semi-precious stones to the bodice. 8 layers of tulle to give the required flounce and for extra pizzaz, it's embellished with dyed marabou feathers at the hem. It comes with the attached arm piece which secures at the beaded cuff to the wrist. The length is 44 but because it has an open back, it's difficult to give a chest measurement.
Signs of age can be seen by the yellowing of the glue used to apply the crystals and beads. I'm not sure how this is restored but it certainly points towards its authenticity.
