We imagine this originally had a matching belt, however we acquired it without a belt.
This is in pretty good condition, with the only issue of note being that the original maker didn’t finish the seams very well: they’re not serged or zigzagged, they don’t even appear to be pinked. We did have some of the seams reinforced, and we did have it dry-cleaned, so it's ready to wear, with care.
Since it is so sheer, we suggest wearing it with a vintage slip; the skirt is so voluminous, it would look wonderful worn with a petticoat to add fullness and swing.
Perfect for graduation parties, spring and summer wedding receptions and other formal events. Also great to wear for a special Friday Night Date Night or dinner out with the girls!
