Gorgeous vintage 80s, 50s-style very full skirted party dress by Frank Usher .Please
FREE delivery worldwide!!Add to wishlist
This is such an amazing, 50s-inspired party dress, that I will tell you now that it's size 12 to 14...so, if that's not you, don't wind yourself up by reading further! It's double-layered, a heavy silky lining over-laid with white spots on black chiffon, fitted and flaring towards the hem line.
The little cap sleeves are lightly padded and gathered at the base, and the sweetheart neckline flatters without revealing too much. the hem is exceedingly full - I have attempted to measure it, and the best I can come up with is 360 inches (approximately 912 cms)... this is less than the true circumference, as the hem is gently scalloped.
Perhaps the nicest thing about it, is the loop sewn into the hem, to hang around your wrist and hold up this glorious skirt as you dance...and, believe me, this is a dress that loves to dance!
Alongside the Frank Usher name, there is a size label and one which warns that the dress should be dry cleaned; it is, as far as I can see, in perfect condition. Approximate measurements are, bust 39 inches/99 cms; waist 32 inches/81 cms; hips 42 inches/106.5 cms; and length from back of neck, 46 inches/117 cms or slightly more.
