Like all O'Hara's this is a showstopper. So elaborate in it's design, yet so simple, and so effortlessly elegant. Not to mention the draped to perfection design. Black crepe fabric with contrasting black grosgrain panels to waist and bust. Dress has a deep v-neck with with a draped pleated panelling over the bust and long sleeves with padded shoulders. Snug fitting wide waistband and a skirt with beautiful diagonal pleating to the front of the upper hip, giving a beautiful fall and movement to the fabric. Skirt is finished with an open front curtain. Back metal zipper fastener.
The dress is not labeled with a size but fits approx like a XS. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Chest: 32" (there is a bit of fullness to the bust so can fit larger (I'm a 35" bust modelling it and it fits me tightly, so would work for 33-34" I think)
Hip: 34" with pleats closed, but has some give to approx 38"
Shoulder to waist: 17"
Sleeve from underarm to cuff: 18"
(There is a 2" hem on this)
-There is some slight thread plucks to the edges of the bottom of the v-neck, I wonder if this was originally a little bit more modest cut and has been opened up to be slightly deeper. See last photo.
-Some slight sheen to the fabric, mainly to the grosgrain.
