For a size XL princes, queen or duchess, this unusual sleeveless
vintage long dress is made of a remarkable heavy brocade
laden with real gold or copper thread and glass beads,
in tones of black, warm yellow, brown, brick, and olive green.
The brocade is fully woven with gold metallic thread and has
floral and tiny paisley designs. Made for royalty!

PLEASE NOTE: my photos are awful. I didn't realize my camera
was on the wrong setting. The last picture shows the true color.

With ruching on the left side, the dress is slit up to the bottom of the
hip on the left, with flounces of brown and olive green chiffon draping
over the leg and from under the bottom of the dress.

With stays in the front and back of the bodice, this vintage gown is
fully lined in brown acetate with a back zipper. I'm certain the
fabric itself was VERY expensive and was from India. The fabric
is a work of art. The dress might be more beautiful without
all the chiffon hanging from the bottom.

Gorgeous for formal wedding attire or for another formal event.
Shown on a size 16 mannequin. This long gown weighs over two
pounds, so shipping is fairly expensive. I will refund to you overage
on shipping and handling if it costs less to mail the dress to you
than I have estimated.
