The ancient Kings of Britain believed they were descended from a snake princess called Melusine, a piece of useless information of which I make you a gift, and of which I am reminded everytime I look at this lovely frock!
The fabric is stiff, drapes beautifully, and is not like something I've ever seen before...because it has a sheen, it's not easy to photograph, but the colour is closer to khaki than gunmetal...a sort of snakey greeny-gold.
You can tell by the length of the zip that this dress is designed to fit, and is closest in size to a modern 14...so our scrawny model is never going to do it justice! It should really cling to your curves and make the most of them - wiggle all the way, girl!
In, as far as I can see, perfect condition, this is a dress that really has to be worn to be appreciated! Approximately a size 14, actual garment measurements, taken to the best of my ability are: bust, 38 ins/96.5 cms; waist, 34 ins/86 cms; hips, 42 ins/107 cms; length from back of neck, 38 ins/96.5 cms. Sexy, classy and unique - what's not to love?
