The reason we sell so many clothes through parties, is because you really, really REALLY have to try vintage stuff on (which is also why we have our no quibble, no-cost-to-you returns policy). I freely admit I looked at this on the hanger, and thought,'oh, well, someone will love it - I expect...'; but when I saw it on the model, I just wondered whether I could squeeze myself into it!
'Opulent' is the word that springs to mind - both in the fabric and the detailing. The sleeves are so pretty ! And the neckline so flattering! And the fabric - it's shiny yet understated - no bling here! And there's a pocket, a deep, proper pocket, in the left hand seam - how often do you find that in a party dress?
Designed to flatter the waist, the bodice is very fitted and the skirt very full (it would look great with a net petticoat underneath!) Fastenings are self-covered buttons on the bodice, plus a side zip; and it is in as-new condition. No labels, but it has been professionally made.
Both in colour and style, this makes me think of the Tudors: but maybe I've been watching too many costume dramas! It's about a modern 8-10; approximate measurements are: bust 34 ins/86 cms, waist 26 ins/66 cms, length of skirt 33, circumference of skirt 160 ins/406 cms (yes, really!) Colour is truest in the pictures taken out-of-doors.
