Bought from the original owner, this dress has only been worn once at her graduation and dates from 1959 to be exact.

Stiff sheer nylon organza
Fitted bodice with illusion neckline and sleeves
Scoop neck at front, V at back
Inner bodice is pink tafetta with a green/gold band at top
FULL 3-layer skirt: Outer layer is stiff sheer white organza embroidered all around in green and pink Sweet Peas. Middle layer is pink tafetta (this lines the entire dress and gives it a soft pink appearance throughout) and the inner layer is an attached full soft pink tulle crinoline. The skirt can accomodate another crinoline under the tulle as I have done here (not included) to enhance the fullness, but it is quite full on it's own and really doesn't need it!
Long green/gold tafetta sash at back with giant bow at the top
Back metal zip, snaps to secure the bow

This dress is truely fabulous and would be perfect for any special occasion and I believe if you are the unconventional bride (don't HAVE to have white) this would be an amazing wedding gown as well:)
