Oh where to begin? Fabulous lush textured velvet and shimmering taffeta made up with beautiful attention to detail in the Victorian style. A rich patterned textured velvet makes up the polonaise bodice. The fitted bodice has a high neckline and sleeves with a gentle pouf at the shoulders. The sleeves are caught just above the elbow, and then continue with a ruffle of the same lush velvet fabric. The hemline of the bodice cuts away from the center front to form deep points on either side, and a deeply pleated long peplum that has the look of an trained overskirt at the back. The entire hemline has a deep flounce of the same velvet fabric as the bodice. Taffeta covered buttons close the front. The full taffeta skirt features a deep band of ruching over an equally deep flounce at the hemline. The skirt is made in black taffeta. 63% Acetate/37% Rayon Velvet/poly Taffeta skirt - please dry clean only. The model is also wearing a hat, earrings, gloves, extra full crinoline, and boots - all are available priced separately. Recollections clothing is made in America.
