A beautiful formal party frock just made for dancing. It was constructed in a Junior size, so that is why it fits Giselle better as Stella is too tall to show the dress off properly. The company label is missing, but the size tag remains so we know that this garment was commercially made. Several of the expected style elements and tailoring details of that era are present – a bow, lace overlay and a sheer overskirt, hooks and eyes at neckline and waist, wasp waist and full skirt with a below-the-knee hemline.
When I found this beauty, it was suffering from some stain problems but that was short-lived. The metal zip still works well. It’s still got many a Prom in its future.
