Gorgeous satin vintage 80s formal ball gown or evening gown fit for a princess. Perfect for anything from a military ball, formal party to a Valentine's day wedding as a bridal gown. Just that lovely!
All a luxurious matte satin in true Crayola red, the beautiful gown has a sweet heart neckline and huge puff sleeves.
The sleeves each are interfaced and lined to help them hold their puff. A single seam down the center of each gives them a ruched fullness, and a red bow of the same fabric above the cuff on each.
Princess styling, the dress has two seams in front acting as darts for the bust, then continuing down a figure flattering fit.
Below the hips is a form of a basque waist, but dropped, and a seam horizontally across the bottom of the dress scoops down and meets the ruffle of the enormous full sweep mermaid hemline.
The hemline is all a ruffle of the same red matte satin, measuring approximately 24" in front, then extending up in back to about 32" long and super full, with an incredible sweep of 200" so it trains a bit as you walk, puddles beautifully as you stand.
Back of the dress has a vee neckline and a long zipper. Just below the waist, where the mermaid ruffle meets the gown is a huge red fabric bow.
Bodice of the dress is lined in the same fabric as the dress. An attached white tulle VERY stiff crinoline is under the ruffle of the mermaid hem to give and keep its fullness.
Absolutely stunning ball gown and sure to bring you tons of compliments as you feel like a princess wearing it!
