An elegant style in luxurious 100% silk crepe-back satin in a subtle oyster shade. It is loosely inspired by the Indian sari with its shoulder drape and gold metallic embroidery....
A fitted structured bodice with boning and underwired cups has an over layer of delicate gold French lace and is embellished with metallic gold bullion embroidery. There is a plaited silk band defining the waist.
A plaited silk silk shoulder strap holds in place a silk satin pleated drape which crosses the bodice front and loops over the shoulder to fall to the ground at the back. It is caught at back waist with a metallic embroidered flower feature.
The fluid skirt is constructed of two layers....the top layer opens to one side at the front and extends into a generous train. The under layer is split to mid thigh to one side of the front, but this could be partially or completely sewn closed if preferred.
The dress closes at the centre back with a row of little silk covered highball buttons and rouleau loops. It is lined in silk satin.
This is a really beautiful design, and a future heirloom piece. It has been tried on a few times, but it is in immaculate as new condition. This is one of the studio samples, which occasionally get sold off at a fraction of the original cost (60-75% reduction) at intervals to make way for fabulous new creations. (Unfortunately these are all generally in the smaller sizes, UK6-10)
Owing to the unique custom made nature of these samples I don't offer returns, so please be sure to check the measurements below before buying. These are the measurements of the standard UK size 8 mannequin on which the dress is shown, with any excess room indicated.
