Collect, wear as a wedding dress, perfect for a gala, or for an extremely special prom this gown is classic. Can't you just picture Elizabeth Taylor wearing this going to the Oscars? One of the few rare Elizabeth Arden dresses we have ever seen this white tulle gown is exceptional. White tulle is actually printed in some areas with black leaves and organza ribbon is stitched in circular patterns creating three dimensional flowers. The bodice of the piece is very intricately made with ties around the empire line and waistline. There are snaps in the fabric to help the tulle cover the zipper as well. The entire bodice also has boning so it will retain the structure when worn. The voluminous skirt is sewn in panels and has a very full crinoline. The back of the gown is slightly longer than the front creating a mini train affect. Along the hemline a few of the flowers need to be re-stitched in an area approximately 2 to 3 inches long. Also approximately 6 inches up from the hemline there is a 6 inch tear in the white tulle around one of the flowers. This could very easily be repaired by a skilled seamstress and it is also very easy to disguise. We have not cleaned this piece at all and the hemline of the attached slip has some light soiling but the dress has no odor of smoke or mold. Because of the construction the bodice is very tight, with no stretch, but the hip is very full. It is shown on a size 4 dress form. Please review all photos prior to purchase and allow us to answer any questions you may have. We are happy to provide additional photos of the areas of damage.
