About

A stunning, fine silk brocade gown with shots of gold worked through the floral pattern. This gives it a subtle shimmer that when set against the pink is just beautiful to see. The bodice is shaped and has light boning. Silk lined and with a beautiful skirt that flows to the floor in a regal column. Present as more pink and the fabric is a good quality and not bulky or thick! I would not be at all surprised to find out that this is a high end designer piece! Hand finishes. Ships professionally dry cleaned

Bust: 18" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 14" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: open
Bodice: 16" from neck to waist
Skirt: 41" from waist to hem
