This is so pretty and I love the bold colourway of black and dark gold with faint metallic threading. The cut is amazing with a striking full skirt - almost full circle - beautiful sweep! Dress has a wide fitted waistband with a slim matching belt. Empire bust with a high plain collared v-neck. 3/4 slightly sheerer sleeves with shoulder pads and cuffs that fasten with concealed popper buttons.. Skirt looks amazing with a petticoat, but falls beautifully without one too. Skirt and bodice is lined. Side metal zipper fastener. Label is Downs, London.

SIZE
The dress is not labeled with a size, but fits approx a general size Medium, approx a UK10 or a small UK12. Please refer to the measurements for your best fit.
(dress is not clipped to fit the model)
Chest: 37"
Waist: 29"
Hip: free
15" approx from shoulder seam to waist
15" shoulder seam to shoulder seam
Length: 47"
(There is a short hem on this so it can't be let down further)

CONDITION
Very good condition.
-Three very discreet marks to the skirt, see photos, hides very well in the fullness and fabric, so not very noticeable when worn.
-There are two areas where the fabric is a little crinkled in texture, which I think is a fabric manufacturing flaw, it's on to the right side of the bodice and a small section to the back of the skirt. Personally I don't find this to be anything that detracts when worn.
