For all of you dark romantics, this is an unsurpassed frock, vintage 1980s. Superb tailoring and attention to detail indicate either a high end custom job or a European couture atelier (tag, sadly gone). This is an A line black dress with long, sheer chiffon sleeves gently puffed at the shoulder. The body consists of an overlay of fine lace work over a black chiffon shell, both front and back. The lace panel splits diagonally down the front left side from breast to hip and hits a ruffled panel snaking around the entire hem. The panel is pleated and reinforced in a fine silk mesh on the underside. Note the striking nude illusion effect at the top of bodice (and upper back) where there is a natural colored mesh instead of the black shell. Closure at rear is a zipper (for the shell) and 8 buttons for the lacy panel.

brand: no label
material: silk chiffon, lace
size on tag: none

hips: 40" (inner shell), 46" (lace panel)

-all measurements are taken flat from front.

condition: Very good with a few minor issues all on the interior (invisible when worn) part. There are two small light brown stains on the brown mesh underlining the illusion bodice and a small tear in it on the left collar bone area. Also, there are two small seam tears inside where one of the sections of lace is attached to the shell. It is actually still very sturdy so you don't have to mend it. Finally, there is a small hole in the black inner shell at bottom left of skirt. None of this is visible when worn, but still priced accordingly.
