Description

This is definitely a dress worthy of Krystle Carrington of Dynasty!
It is a knee length formal dress in a light sea foam or mint green poly georgette chiffon and is fully lined. It is unworn and has the original hang tags. The maker is Patra, and is made in the USA. It was being sold by JC Penney.
Sized 13/14 Petite.

The style is high 1980's over the top. Heavy shoulder padded, draped and gathered bodice, dotted with white pearls. The midriff is a gathered cummerbund effect, with pearl and rhinestone motif and hanging scarf at center front. The skirt is a simpler straight skirt style with a little bit of gathering coming from the dropped waist. There is a small kick pleat in back at the hem.
Center back zipper still works great.

I have photographed it on a size 8 dress form, so it is appearing a little big for it since it is a size 13/14.

Bust: measured flat side seam to side seam is 20 inches (so that is 40 inches all around)
Underbust or Ribcage: measured flat side seam to side seam is 17 inches (so that is 34 inches all around)
Waist: measured flat side seam to side seam is 16 inches (so that is 32 inches all around)
Hip: measured flat side seam to side seam is 22 1/2 inches ( so that is 45 inches all around)
Length: measured from neckline to hem in back is 40 inches.
