Silk Embroidered Gown
Early 1960s label Waltah Clarke silk gown.
Cheongsam inspired emerald green embroidered silk with gold thread fishscale motif. Perfect for living out those mermaid dreams! Fully lined, nylon coil Talon zipper, right leg slit with frog closure detail.

Condition: Overall the dress is in impeccable condition however there is light staining down the front. Due to the design and satin finish on the silk, the stains are really only noticeable under certain lighting and close inspection when worn. I have not tried to remove the stains or have it dry cleaned. It looks like the dress was worn once and had coffee spilled down the front, poor beautiful lady 😟! There are a few missing gold threads on one fishscale. See photos for details.
