Circa 1980s ballerina-length dress designed by Gardams of Brisbane (renown for their quality and workmanship). 1980s Gardams silk dress is made from stunning oyster-pink slub silk. The fitted boned bodice has a dropped waist. The front is covered in superb ribbon lace. Puff sleeves, tops of sleeves and bodice back are trimmed with motifs from the ribbon lace.
The super-full skirt is gathered into dropped waist and has 2 layers of tulle underneath. Fully lined with zip at back.
Condition excellent. The only flaws I could find are a few very small brown insect marks which would be hardly noticeable
Size small approx AU 8
Please check measurements as the waist measurements were very small and the girls shorter in the 1950s. Measurements are measured flat on dress so please remember to allow room to move. It is always a good idea to check measurements against a dress that you know fits
