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.
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)
15" approx from shoulder seam to waist
15" shoulder seam to shoulder seam
(There is a short hem on this so it can't be let down further)
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.
