Our 18th century styled overdress is made up in rich dupioni and taffeta. It is shown with a black taffeta underskirt, which is priced separately. 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 dupioni attached overskirt is split at the center front and bustled up at the hips and in the back. You can pair this overdress with one of your black taffeta skirts. Please dry clean only. Recollections clothing is proudly made in America. Liesa finishes her look with a black taffeta skirt, jewelry, gloves, and an extra full crinoline - all are available priced separately. Just perfect!
