Dreamiest 1940s party dress! The bodice is made of lush purple velvet and three pink floral gem buttons dot the bust. The skirt is super full and sweeping! It’s made of a really cool pinky-purple iridescent moiré taffeta. This moiré has an unusual pattern, more like amoebas than wood grain. The skirt has velvet piping, and the inside is back with horsehair panels to give it structure. Side zip closure.
FITS LIKE: xs
WAIST: 25” (I wore it comfortably at 26” though)
FLAWS: one missing gem in the buttons. There’s a ~2inch tear near the hem and some staining as well but this is completely lost in the fullness of the skirt when worn. Tiny hole on back near where the strap attaches.
