LAST CALL! 50% OFF! We are most pleased to offer this gorgeous evening gown. The lovely lavender color is what catches the eye first. But, then the details begin to register and the "ah's" begin. The design includes a jewel neckline, sparkly yoke on illusion net decorated with scattered lavender, wine and faux pearl beads further accented with silver sequins. The sparkles continue as caps over the elbow length sleeves. The dress is elaborately composed of pleats of lavender tulle. These pleats form the sleeves and the bodice. The bodice pleats are on the diagonal with a sweetheart shape top. The set in waist leads to a gathered skirt also in the tulle. We can all agree that as one approaches in this dress, the room turns to the star of the show. But, wait--you have not yet seen the back of the dress. The beaded yoke continues at the back but breaks rank to form a large oval shaped key-hole anchored at the top with a hook and eye band. How does the dress close? That is the biggest surprise. Long lavender satin ties loop corset style over an in place panel to close the back. The bodice and skirt are lined in the same satin liner which is backed. The underskirt is a slimmer style rather than the soft gathers of the tulle. We found no makers label and no size label, only evidence of a cut-out size label. So, careful attention to the following measurements will help. They indicate a size 10, but use your own judgment. Details: sleeve 12 1/2"; 13 1/2" across back; 16 5/8" shoulder to waist; 51" waist to hem; 30 1/4" waist; 36 1/2" bust. We found no holes and no stains. We have not cleaned this dress. Item 104106a
