Be the Queen Bee at the ball in this statement evening gown.
Horizontal black and yellow striped gown has a fitted bodice, a very full skirt and spaghetti straps. An enormous bow trims the front. The fabulous fabric has sheer black stripes alternating with the solid yellow, most likely a kind of rayon. A taffeta lining gives the skirt body and swish. Closes with a metal zip in the side. Label reads "Fairy Frocks - Sydney". 1950s.

Good. The original zip has been replaced with a similar metal zip. There's a small patch beneath a hole at the side back waist of the bodice, as shown.
