A great gypsy dancer dress in royal purple crepe.
The top, which has a great trimmed out VEE neckline is sort of what I'd call
"Harlow Style", because it is gathered from the shoulders down under the bust at
the empire waistline. More trim follows the under the bust. The trim sort of
looks like lace with soutache woven into it. Beautiful!
There is an added
embroidered piece and another piece of that crochet trim below that.
this dress is fabulous and you can dress it up or down. This crepe rayon has
that great flowy “hand” to it. There are 2 fabrics here -- there is solid drapey
rayon crepe, and also the same rayon but it's a very downplayed floral. It's done in a sort of
a patchwork style and the piecing is done vertically and horizontally, with the
main piecing being done vertically. Then there are wider pieces past the knee,
so it gets wider and "twirllier" towards the bottom.
Also, where you see the
crochet running at the waist? It's lined. No see-thru As this is heavy crepe,
steaming can add an inch or so depending on the pressure and pulling of your
iron.The dress you receive is not pressed or steamed, so it may be off up to an
inch from the measurents below. You'll have to steam or press on receipt. This
is a cool water wash dress and hang to dry. An all around fabulous "hippie"
dress that you can wear at least 3 seasons.
