In today's market it is difficult to find decent dresses in large sizes so I always on the lookout. This is a straight cut long dress in polyester crepe with white beaded accents on cuffs of faux jacket and in the shape of a mermaid bra across bust. This gives the dress a younger and with it look. The faux pearls, clear glass bugle beads and beige sequins are outlined in beige sutash ribbon on white organza. The bottom part of the applique is on the crepe and the upper top portion is on a sheer beige organza. The sheer neckline is of sheer organza. The faux jacket features 6 tucks with unpressed pleats to give the jacket a softer look. The top half of the faux jacket opens in the center back partially covering a long back nylon zipper. There is also a center kick pleat on the bottom of the gown. The gown is lined in a light weight beige taffeta.
Here are the measurements....
SHOULDER TO SHOULDER...19"
The Long dress / gown has been worn once. It is in very good condition. The only defect I see is a stitch missing on top of the kick pleat which is common. The dress has been store since the 1980's and after a cleaning / pressing it will look like new. There are removable shoulder pads in the garment.
