Oh my! Where can we start to describe this wonderful black velvet ball gown? You select the color for the shimmering panel inserts that peek out from between velvet panels on the bodice and skirt. The skirt panels are accented with criss-crossed bands of black velvet ribbon and black tassels. On the bodice, black ropes and tassels add interest to the front panel. The deep "V" formed by the taffeta panel on the bodice front is framed with outrageous amounts of rich, floral-themed black Venice lace, which continues around the entire neckline in back. Long velvet sleeves are poufed at the shoulder and then taper to the wrist. The bodice closes at the back with your choice of a zipper or hooks and eyes. The skirt is gathered into the bodice at the waist and falls in generous folds to the floor. You will feel like the princess from a fairy tale in this luxurious gown! Made up in cotton velvet and Acetate taffeta or Polyester dupioni inserts; please dry clean only. Proudly designed and made in America by Recollections. The model is also wearing jewelry, gloves, a ruffled hoop crinoline - all are available priced separately. Simply breath-taking!
