Done in a gorgeous, iridescent burgundy/black shading, the taffeta shimmers in both colors with movement. The scooped neckline sits low on the shoulders. Texture was added throughout the dress with cord laid beneath, then stitched to hold it into place.

Princess seams make her fit like a glove. The skirt is NOT a true circle skirt as it is a wee bit sleek and fitted at the tops of the hips, but the sweep is huge (shown here with a semi-fluffy crinoline) and very showy. Hidden beneath is a white slip. Closes under the left arm with a long metal zipper.


Very Good. There were a few spots of the teeniest holes (common with taffeta) in the skirt; these have been mended with fabric tape and are virtually invisible. A .25 inch/0.6 cm tear in the fabric, left-back, which has also been mended, is nearly invisible and could only be found on closest inspection. I've shown the area over the left breast where there are a couple of tiny pinholes-looks like someone's corsage was placed there and detracts very little, if at all. This dress is gorgeous and you'll be thrilled to appear at your party in it!
