This is It! The perfect dress for ... well, anything!
I bought this on Ebay over 3 years ago (for approximately $150) and only wore it once ... in Vegas on "Limo night" ;~) I wish I had the information from when I purchased it. I do not know the year it is from, but I purchased it as "Vintage" and old. And I'm not great with describing fashion or fabrics, I'm no seamstress ;) I do have good taste and I can tell you this is one BEAUTIFUL dress! I am just a 'tad' larger now and so I'm passing it on to the lucky high bidder!
This jewel can be worn as a strapless. It is seen in the pics with a strapless bra, which looks wonderful with its formed/boned top which shapes and stays up beautifully! Why don't they make them like this anymore ;~)
The bottom has flowing layers of light material scalloped at the edges. The shell underneath is a more substantial fabric. The high waist band/sash is layers of fabric going sideways in a flattering fashion. A very flattering design for any figure! The colors are white, pink, a berry or hot pink, with a little black.
The scarf/wrap connects with 3 snaps (one is loose & needs to be sewn on tighter) to hold the shawl in place! I love the fact that you don't need your hands to keep this on!
The only label in the dress is in cursive and is difficult to read. The first name is ? - looks kind of like Lalarav. Last name Modelle (or Madelle) and it reads hand made. Could be Frohne Modelle, but I can't be positive. It resembles 20's style dresses I saw on European Ebay when researching it. I had this dress dry cleaned before, which it now needs again.
The size seems quite flexible, but my guess is it is a very comfortable fit for a size 8/10. In the pictures I am wearing a size 36C pushup, strapless bra. Please note, I am approximately 5' 5 1/2" 150 lbs. with a pot belly, long torso & long legs ;) But I'm holding my breath here ... it's snug and about 1/2" from being all the way zipped, but I'm a size 12 top now!
Measurements of the dress itself, lying flat, are approximate & as follows:
Length: 35" - top to bottom (front of dress)
There is also a 2 1/4" hem is you need to let it out to make it longer.
I have many more photos I can send if you'd like, just let me know.
Thank you for looking and please feel free to ask any questions, including info. on my 100% positive feedback on Ebay ... buy with confidence.
