SALE! 20% OFF! Offered is a lovely cocktail dress resplendent in black beading and lace. It is a sophisticated combination of two pieces--a skirt and a drop waist bloused top. Let's give the details. The top is simply enticing. We start at a lace high collar. The upper bodice is see-through floral lace on net with black beading to outline the flower petals. The illusion is of the black flowers blossoming across the bodice. The sleeves are not lined either and fall gracefully to below the elbow. The top is meant to be blouson in effect with a dropped waist. From the dropped waist is a free falling gathered panel ending in pointed lace. There is a black tank lining the top and it is deeply cut at the armholes. It is attached at the bottom of the top. The top is placed over an elastic waist skirt that also has the black floral design enhanced with the heavy beading. The hem is in pointed lace. It is also lined. The labels have been removed except one declaring this is 100% rayon and size L. Details: Skirt: this needs new elastic as the existing elastic has lost its stretch. It currently measures at 40". It has a 48" hip and is 35 3/4" from waist to pointed tip hem. It closes at the back with hooks and eyes. Top: this proved hard to measure as we could not get a good take on the tank as it is connected to the lace blouse. The sleeves are wing style and are 18" from the natural shoulder; 36" shoulder to hem; 48" bust; 53" shoulder to hem for total outfit. We found no holes and no stains, but Please Note: some of the beading may have lost its black coating--some appear more smoky than black. We have not cleaned this item. We note no odor.
