Tiny prong back rhinestones are liberally sprinkled on neckline of the bodice and 9 self covered butons run down the back. It comes with an attached red taffeta petticoat with net ruffle at the bottom. Huge skirt with side zipper in metal. Condition: small tears at front underarm (see closeup) which have been mended, a few very small, light spots on lace at rear. Label reads: Miss Cane New York.
Measurements follow: Bust 36" (underarm to underarm not including bust darts) ,Waist 24 ", Free Hips, length from shoulder to hem 47". I ship once a week so let me know if it's a rush. We do ship internationally but prices vary depending on location. Thank you for browsing in my shop!
