Construction wise, there are three layers to the skirt; an acetate underskirt, over-layed with a plain net skirt and finally the top layer. This has 11 ruffle trims added in rows which give the dress a very full and sweeping profile. The boned bodice is also in the same coloured ruched fabric, imitating taffeta silk with net trim to the sweetheart neckline. The dress has a very pleasing detachable layered net halter neck that widens over the shoulders to give a little cape like effect. Fastening to the rear with the original concealed centre back zip and hook and eye closure. A long bow decoration completes the romantic look of the dress from the back.
Overall this dress presents very nicely indeed. In good to very good vintage condition for a dress which we are sure has been to one or two grand parties over its exciting life. On very close inspection, we noticed two or three small pin holes here or there on the bodice and a few blemishes on the back near the zip but nothing which would detract from the overall look. The net overskirts are in terrific shape but the acetate under-layer has water-markings or slight staining on the front; these of course are not seen when worn but mentioned for accuracy. The dress has very petite measurements and would best fit a US 0-2 or UK 4-6.
