This fabulous deep sparkling pink dress has a flirty scoop neckline front and back, with a figure flattering ruched cummerbund and amazing flared full skirt, perfect for dancing the night away!
This has no labels or tags; it appears to be custom sewn. It measures:
up to 34" bust
from the underarm to the top of the empire waistband is 4",
from the underarm to the bottom of the cummerbund waist band is 8"
from the underarm to the hem is 33" long.
The sweep of the hem is a delightful 120" , yes, that's 10 FEET of hem!
This is fully lined, and has a nylon net crinoline attached underneath at the waist, and a layer of acetate lining in that delicious cerise pink ~ which enhances the shimmering chiffon layer above it.
Also underneath, there has been added a layer of fabric around the waistband, we assume to protect the wearer from being scratched by the netting.
At the shoulders? blush pink chiffon gathers attach to the front and back bodice for an extra bit of sturdiness ~ 11" long each ~ underneath, the original 1/4" velvet straps are still folded under ~ we can only assume the wearer was modest, so these wider straps were added on at some time.
The hem has nylon horsehair braid to add a bit of extra shape and flare to the skirt.
The center back zipper is 15" long, CC, metal, works perfectly. This also has hooks and eyes at the center back top, and at the top and bottom of the cummerbund.
Condition: just back from the dry cleaners ~ fresh and ready to wear! It is in fabulous condition except for two tiny small holes, one in the front, to the side a bit and about 5" up from the hem, and the other on the back, to the right of center and about 8 1/2" up from the hem. Neither are visible when worn ~ the full skirt disguises it beautifully. However if inspected, they can be found.
We photographed it with an additional crinoline; that extra crini is not included.
These are amazing party dresses ~ for VLV, weddings, dances, formals, proms, or for an intimate engagement celebration!
