'Christine'; a beautifully elegant full length design in 100% silk, with echoes of the 1930s in its styling. This is a luxurious double weight silk crepe back satin, which has a wonderful fluid drape, in a sophisticated pale gold-ish oyster shade.
The bias cut bodice has a draped front neckline which dips into a low 'V' at the back. The waist has a shaped panel which is embellished with a hand beaded deco design of interlinked circles, worked in silvery flat sequins, bugle beads and Swarovski crystals. This design is echoed in the beaded motifs at the shoulders. The skirt is cut in one flowing panel that skims the hips and extends into a train at the sides and back. ** In the pictures the hem is beaded, but this particular version has a plain hem (which incidentally makes it much easier to shorten if necessary)**
The dress closes at centre back with silk covered buttons and rouleau loops, and is fully lined in silk.
It has only been used for one photoshoot, and has been tried on in the studio, but it is in excellent clean condition with no real flaws that I could spot, apart from a couple of small smudges towards the hem of the train. These really can only be seen on very close inspection, and do not detract at all from the overall beauty of the dress. This is one of the studio samples, which occasionally get sold off at a fraction of the original cost (60-80% 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 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 adjustable mannequin, set to the highest figures the dress will comfortably accommodate.
We do ship internationally, and I have included some figures for a few of the more popular destinations, but if your country is not listed please get in touch for an accurate shipping quote before completing checkout. Please be aware that there may be import tax payable at point of entry according to local tax laws.
