This pretty little fit and flare party dress is a confection of tulle netting and swishy satin with an enormous frothy corsage at the left shoulder.
The bodice has a satin base that is draped in white netting, and the skirt has two delightful layers of netting as well for fullness and body.
This does have skinny spaghetti straps, but it can be worn strapless as well.
Measurements translate to about a modern size 4:
8.5" long from underarm to waist
33" long skirt from waist to hem
We've shown this with a single crinoline (which is not included).
No tags except for a size (9) tag.
The satin is a slinky synthetic, the netting is crisp and full of body like nylon rather than soft and droopy like cotton.
This would be a charming wedding dress, or of course, a debutante or formal dress, as well.
Condition: we found a tear in the top layer of netting of the skirt near the hem; this is an easy mend (with invisible thread), and is well disguised in the fullness of the skirt. Also of note: this appears to us that it needs to be cleaned as it is SLIGHTLY darkened around the inside top edges: this is NOT visible when worn. We don't have a reputable dry cleaner near us, so we can not have this cleaned the way we wish we could for you. Please see photos of flaws; we are pricing lower, accordingly.
