Our 18th century styled ball gown is made up in rich dupioni and taffeta. The overdress has a closely fitted bodice with a square neckline and a deep "V" at the waist front. Dupioni ruching details the neckline. The sleeves have a flattering fullness at the shoulder, and are trimmed out with more ruching at the elbow. A gathered asymmetrical pouf trimmed in lace finishes the sleeve. The bodice front features a black taffeta panel that is trimmed in plush black velvet ribbon and black rose Venice lace. The skirt of the overdress is split in the middle and bustled up at the sides and back. The separate underskirt of black taffeta has a flounce at the hemline and several rows of vertical lace at the center front. The underskirt has a comfortable elastic waist. Please dry clean only. Recollections clothing is proudly made in America. Liesa finishes her look with jewelry, gloves, and an extra full crinoline - all are available priced separately. Just perfect!
