Deep black velvet top and full 9 gored skirt completely covered in panels of ruched gathered taffeta that creates an illusion of a high waisted skirt. Beautiful construction details, Novelty printed Scandinavian lining fabric, paper interfacing on the panels of the skirt, boning in bodice. Shown here with a crinoline, which is not included in the listing.

Clipped on the model: Yes
Model is 5'8" and a size 2-4
The waist is fixed, there is no stretch.
Silhouette:New look style party dress with full 9 gored skirt, should be worn with a crinoline. not included in the listing.
Material:Cotton, lining, rayon velvet, mercerized cotton, taffeta, paper interfacing.
Condition:Very good! 2 small repairs made in the strap areas. The skirt is very heavy and when hanging on a traditional hanger it places weight at the straps, I suggest hanging the dress on a clip hanger at the waist lining to prevent clip marks on the velvet.
