This exquisite fit and flare party dress features a beautifully sculpted front bodice of tucked satin scooping from the right to shape a wide cummerbund waistband and shelf for the bust. At the (wearer's) left waistline, the satin forms a large bow.
The skirt has three layers: aqua taffeta, covered by two layers of honeycomb tulle
Bust: 18" across the front plus 15.5" across top of back for a bust of 32-33"
Skirt length from under arm to hem 41"
Skirt length from waist to hem 33"
Condition: The bow needs a good steaming, but this is in otherwise excellent condition except for one tiny hole (looks like cigarette burn size) that is well-hidden within the fullness of the skirt. We used to dry clean all garments like this (even when they were in as good of condition as this) however, our former professional retired and the new one has already ruined a couple of the dresses we have taken in to them. So, we are selling as acquired, and pricing accordingly.
This comes with a detachable taffeta shrug and 2 tulle jacket/shrugs (1 is size 10, the other is size 12) with wing collars, curved front opening, extended shoulder and side darts. 10 is bust 31, 12 is bust 32"
There are no other labels on this.
