Nude Illusion Wiggle Fit Beaded Party Dress

About

This exceptional, c. 1950s illusion dress has a sexy nude illusion on the bodice. It's constructed from 2 layers of fabric. The sheer, darker flesh colored outer layer is backed by a pale flesh color that's somewhat more opaque. The effect is like wearing stockings or nylons on naked skin. Overlaying that is a fabulous swirling appliqué that covers just enough. It's extravagant curls continue around the sides to end in a flourish at the lower back. The fabric is a dark navy blue covered with navy beads that have an iridescent finish. The fitted skirt also has a 2 layer construction. The navy blue gauze (feels like silk) is lined with a somewhat brighter blue opaque fabric (feels like acetate, or similar). It has long darts near the waist to flatter your curves and an 11.5" slit up the back for ease of movement. The sexy dress has a hint of the burlesque. It's like a classic evening dress crossed with a showgirl costume. approximate measurements (taken lying flat without stretching the fabric): -across shoulders is 14.25" -underarm to underarm is 17" -across waist is 12.5" -across hips is 18.5" -shoulder to waist is 14.75" -waist to hem is 36" Please contact us if you have any questions.
