Lace dress with bowed belt
Elegant ballet dress makes play with layers and textures. Bodice is crafted of a soft, yarn lace --- partly-lined with black faille --- open-weave through the arms. Skirt is a gathered, swishing, sheer chiffon, lined with a rustle of faille. Glossy satin pipes the wide scoop neck + bracelet-length sleeves. A sculptural satin belt cinches the waist… and ties you with a bow!

condition**- very good
Delightfully wearable shape, with no obtrusive flaws. Any small faults do not retract from wearability and will be fully-disclosed. Noted: the belt shows minor scratching. One watermark to the skirt. Minor iron shine to the skirt. These issues are only noticable in full sunlight. Freshly-laundered, but a slight perfume odor remains.
Repairs: several tiny holes to skirt have been mended.
