Most of my gowns are new never worn or altered unless noted in description. Some have tags and some don't. These gowns came from a bridal shop that opened in 1971. Your dress will need a light pressing or dry cleaning professional to press. They are not in need of cleaning. I have never purchased a dress new from store where I didn't find some kind of minor flaw or problem. I will mention these problems if they are notable.

COMMENTS: For your consideration is this pretty feminine orchid color bordering southern belle dress looking dress. The skirt isn't as full so that is why I say bordering. It is a orhid or lavender color. This dress has a low off the should neckline and low back. There is elastic in the tops to adjust for a off the shoulder or on. It has speggetti staps to keep the dress up. The bodice is simple with a straight waist line embellished with a simple satin ribbon and rose at the side. This has a gathered full skirt that has several pull ups with ribbons exposing a ruffled hem that is attached to the lining. This dress is photographed with a full bridal slip (Not include). There is no room for a hoop. Pictured is a orchid hat that is not available.
If still available it will be $10.00. Shipping may increase slightly. Wear this dress for Prom, Pageants, reenactments or a garden wedding. This is a sweet dress with a southern flare to it. I have more pictures of details with this dress. If you convo me I will be glad to send them. Thank you for visiting my boutique!

PLEASE NOTE: The sizes are either from tags or labels. Some are taken from shop owners tags. A lot of the sizes were cut out of dresses. This is common practice for good dress shops to keep customers from not purchasing a dress because of size. These strapless gowns are difficult to measure due to boning and the open backs so these are approx. measurements within 1/2 Inch on either side of my stated measurements. DO NOT GO BY SIZE. KNOW YOUR MEASUREMENTS AND ALWAYS BUY LARGER SO IT CAN BE ALTERED. All manufactures have different sizes and also earlier dresses have a different size scale.
