Sheer organdy overlay dress, taffeta slip & velvet belt with bouquet. This romantic ensemble features a sheer overlay gown in pale pink organdy, a moiré taffeta full slip in white and a salmon hued silk velvet belt with an attached bouquet of silk rosebuds. The overlay gown has a delicate embroidered window pane pattern, fitted bodice with sweetheart neckline, and short gathered sleeves.
The trained skirt is voluminous falling in billowing folds about the hemline. This dress closes on the left side and in the back with several pairs of very tiny snaps & one hook & eye. The under slip has a body conscious bias cut and open low back. It simply slips over the head and has no formal closures.
There are 2 thread loops on the organdy gown at the shoulders to hold the slip in place. The detached velvet belt with bouquet simply encircles the waist and closes with 2 pairs of metal hooks & eyes. The flowers are all wired and can be adjusted variously.
Overall this dress is in very good to excellent condition (see my key below) with the following issues noted and (largely) detailed in the photos. Do take the time to enlarge the photos for these details. On the organdy gown : there are a few seam separations: on the top of the left shoulder, at the waistline & along the closure (pictures 9 & 10). I noted a few spots of discoloration near the bottom of the skirt (see picture 11) along with some very faint discoloration on top of the shoulders and along the hemline light dust? This might very well be remedied with a professional cleaning.
I did note some pin pricks <1/8 in one area towards the hemline, and a single prick here and there. On the taffeta slip : Theres a small tear at the v in the back (see picture 12).
On the belt & bouquet : The fabric encircling a couple of the stems is loose. This charming ensemble is the quintessence of romance and nostalgia--perfect for an outdoor wedding and countess other significant events. 58 66 total length of GOWN.
