Handmade vintage prom/party dress, approx 60s era, but still has a very 50s silhouette and print. Black with vivid green and blue print with romantic roses. Ruched sweetheart bodice with strapless design. Waistline nips in and the skirt is massive, beyond full circle, and looks amazing over a petticoat. Quite lightweight and unlined. Bodice has a built in corset/bralet to give structure. Back nylon zipper to fasten. Fabric is a quite crisp slightly rustly synthetic. Handmade piece, so no labels.
Dress is pictured with a petticoat which is not included in the sale.
The dress is not labeled with a size but fits approx like a Small. For your best fit please refer to the measurements.
Top of bust to waist: 12"
(There is a short hem on this)
Good condition with some things to note:
Interior construction is a bit handmade/diy in nature, the bodice has a sewn in longline bra/corset design which is commercially made but has been incorporated into the handmade dress to give bodice shape and structure. See photo. It's not noticeable as such when worn and works great to give firmness and hold to the bodice, but some of the seams where it attaches to the back by the zipper are a little bit unneat.
Some light signs of fade/wear to the fabric/print around the side seams and folds of the bodice, but this is not noticeable when worn.
Presents very well, as most of this isn't particularly visible on the outside.
