Not necessarily homemade but possibly handmade, this has no label but a dry clean only instruction in the lining. It comes from an age when dressmakers were commonplace so you could commission a party dress to be made to measure.
It's been very well tailored, with shaping that comes from the front shoulder over the bust to give a flattering figure enhancing form. The dress is fully lined and fastens at the back with its original zipper - I've dated 1980s but this is possibly '70s.
The wide horizontal bands are 3" / 7.5cm wide and alternate in silver, purple, pink and black. The colours are still vivid and it has a great sparkle - no pulls or other damage to the fabric.
Why hit the High Street when you can choose an individual outfit that know one else at the party will turn up in?
