This stunning custom made dress is sheer, even where it's lined. The dress would be perfect for a summer garden party with flat sandals, a black tie event, or any time you want to look absolutely incredible! You could also shorten it to make it more "practical" if a long dress isn't something you would use very often!

Dress features: square neckline, shoulder pads to make the sleeves puff up a bit, unlined long billowy sleeves with one button on each cuff, long center back zipper with hook/eye above, inside waistband with two hooks/eyes, and the bra strap things. Dress has a matching wide cummerbund that attaches in the back with 2 snaps and 3 hooks/ thread eyes. There is a front slit so you can show some leg!

Dress is in very good vintage condition. It could use a little seam reinforcement at the bottom of the zipper and perhaps at the waistband. You may also want to sew the slip up a bit closer to the zipper so it's not so sheer in that area. Other than that, I don't see any stains or flaws.

There aren't any tags so I don't know what the fabric content is. It might be a sheer polyester, or maybe a silk blend or something. It's a little bit "nubby".

Measurements are taken with the dress lying flat and doubled as appropriate. Measurements are of the garment itself and fabric is NOT stretchy, so please be sure to leave room for your body and movement!
