The dress has a high collar, giving it a bit of a Victorian flare. The upper part of the bodice is made out of a sheer mesh. The dress has long sleeves that are made out of gathered satin at the top and sheer mesh at the bottom.The mesh is accented with embroidery and beading, and the sleeves close with 8 buttons. The dress has a full skirt with a huge sweep, and it has a train in the back that can be bustled up. The dress closes with a long row of buttons down the back, and there is a zipper below the buttons. NOTE: I displayed this dress over a crinoline to show off the fullness of the skirt. However, the listing is just for the dress. The crinoline is not included. There are no size tags on the dress, but I believe it would best fit a size Small. The actual measurements are as follows. 17 inches across, underarm to underarm (34 inches around) Shoulders: 14 inches across, seam to seam Natural Waist: 12.75 across (25.5 inches around, measured at the narrowest part of the dress) Drop Waist: 13.75 inches across (27.5 inches around, measured at the seam between the bodice and the skirt) Hips: Full and roomy Length: 59 inches down the front; 105 inches down the center of the back.
These are the actual measurements of the garment, so please leave yourself room for comfort of movement. All measurements were taken with the item laying flat. The flat measurements were doubled to give an approximate measurement around.
This dress is in very good used condition. However, I did notice a handful of scuff marks here and there on the train of the dress (see last picture for example). I also noticed some minor scuff marks on the buttons of the dress (see picture for example).The dress is still totally wearable as is! I also have many other items in my store, so check out my other listings! BY PURCHASING, YOU ARE AGREEING TO THE FOLLOWING STORE POLICIES. The items in my shop are used and may show minor signs of wear, but I will do my best to describe any flaws that I find. I go to the post office every week day, Monday - Friday. Ive had some customers get their packages in around a week, and for others, it has taken a month. The large majority of the items in my store are vintage, and therefore pre-owned. I do my best to only put items up for sale that are in very good to excellent vintage condition, and I will list any major flaws that I notice. However, most vintage clothing has been around for several decades or more, and it may have some minor snags in the fabric, the occasional loose thread or other minimal signs of wear. Vintage items may also have raw seams that have not been serged. By purchasing, you are accepting that these items are used and may not be 100% perfect. However, if you feel I have overlooked a major flaw, please let me know! I personally have a SMOKE FREE AND PET FREE HOME. I won't sell a piece of clothing if I notice a smoke smell on it from a previous owner. I have no way of knowing if the original owner of the clothing had pets, but I will use a lint roller to remove any fuzz or stray hair I notice. Because most of what I sell is vintage, an item may have been in storage for quite a few years, so I always recommend you wash or dry clean your item before wearing it.
If for some reason you have a problem, please CONTACT ME before leaving negative or neutral feedback, and I will do my best to help you with your concerns!
