Amazing Judith Ann beaded dress in great condition. Rounded jewel neckline with bugle bead collar. Illusion mesh top gives the look of strapless. Shoulder pads. Black swirl sequin designs embellish collarbone and long sleeves. Cuffs are embellished with rows of bugle beads. Bandeau style bodice is fully sequined in gorgeous slightly transparent sequins in yellow, red, kelly green, purple, and amber in abstract designs reminiscent of flower stalks. Bodice is lined in black cotton. Extremely full black silk skirt has 4-1/2" wide sequinned border of Mexican-inspired flowers in same colours as bodice. Skirt is lined in silk and has white soft tulle crinoline for a little added fullness. Back has low illusion back; hook and eye and long zip closure. As you can see from the pictures, this is a little small on the shoulder blades and back for my mannequin, and doesn't quite do up. In very good to excellent condition - this is a dress which has not been worn much, and has been carefully preserved. 2" of one line of tiny black bugle beads is missing at bottom hem. 1-1/4" of 2 lines of red sequins is missing near underarm of bodice - but the red thread is still there, so very hard to see. Otherwise, in fantastic, wearable condition. A special dress for a special night!

Measurements are for garment size, not your body size. Please remember to leave some "wiggle" room. Measure a similar garment which fits you well, and compare!

Modeled here by my size medium mannequin. Her measurements are: 36"x 26" x 38". This dress is a little small on the bust and shoulder blades for her, and would suit someone just a little smaller better.
