The dress has three tiers for the skirt with the final having a deep gathered flounce. There is a front fastening lace up section in the corset which is entirely adjustable and can be tightened or loosened to suit the wearer’s preference. The zip is original to the dress and is covered by a placket. There is a side tie belt; this is very generous and is almost the length of the dress so it could be wrapped round several times as desired.
These dresses were worn to events and parties and tend to have suffered over time but this dress is in remarkably good condition. We note just the tiniest, thumbprint-size faded stain on the bottom flounce, together with some faded marks probably where somebody spilt a drink. There is a tiny thread of discoloration on the lace trim on the front panel. They're extremely difficult to spot when worn - your eye is not drawn to them at all. These would improve with further treatment over time. Lace is in superb condition and the velvet is excellent – no blemishes. Around a best fit for size a UK 8-10 or US 4-6.
