My homage to Bette Davis’ “All about Eve” dress

Here I present my homage to Edith Head and Bette Davis’ dress in All About Eve. This beautiful early 1950s style ballet length gown in pink/ orange shot silk dupion and nylon tulle creates the perfect silhouette for the belle of the ball. With a full skirt and fitted bodice, the greatest detail is in the off shoulder tulle gathered across, fastened by a diamanté brooch, creating a fantastic assymetrical, slightly illusion type effect. Added, half 3/4 length sleeves. Also with tulle belt across waist fastened by a brooch at the side. With zip fastening at the back.
