Lovely pink taffeta/satin party dress with embroidered floral trim and green velvet straps.
The dress bodice is boned; 2 in the bust and 2 on the sides for a total of 4. The waist is fitted and there are signs of stress in the seams, see last images. The skirt is full with attached netting. The fabric is a bit stiff. It reminds me of taffeta and also has a satin-like quality. Please note it will need a few repairs and to be steamed before wear.
The dress closes in the rear with a metal zipper. It was photographed with a crinoline to add extra fullness, the crinoline is not included with the dress.
Condition: Very good.
There is a stress area in the bodice seams and a split in one of the upper side seams. A rust colored spot on the skirt in the rear. Some fading in the skirt. See last few images for condition.
Waist 26" (the dress is tiny here and depending on your height, this can be a high waist/ribs area)
Length 46" (Measurement taken from top of velvet strap to hem)
