Style H410 gown

This size 12 Selby gown was for sale at The DIC for $40.95 but it didn't sell (even at the sale price of $12.95) and was never worn. The fabric was numbered 1195/3 and the '3' will denote the colour way - this gown probably came in three colour options. At this time, manufactured garments were sold by style numbers - in this case Style H410. Designer garments, however, were named, and still are today.
