100 Objects

This evening dress is crocheted in Twilleys Goldfingering metallic yarn and was made in the 1970s, of which the style is typical. It is in exceptionally good condition and has been very well constructed, in a UK size 12. The sleeveless dress is full length and buttons through to the knee. It is intended to be close fitting, with the waist being defined by a more solid band of crochet. There is additional fringing, hanging from the hem to below the knee. It has no provenance.
