Vintage 80s Wendy Limbert Size S royal-blue special occasion dress

£39.99

Product description

Gorgeous special occasion dress with lots of back interest from Wendy Limbert in a royal- blue, probably silk fabric, with a lot of back interest. Possibly professionally hand-made to the highest standards with some hand finishing, the dress has a round neckline at the front with a V at the back. It fastens at the back with a long hidden zip. The front of the dress is quite plain & fitted with darts into the waist & then straight to the hemline. The back is also fitted & plain to below the waist but then has frills piped with black which curve inwards to almost converge behind the knees with a fabric rose at their closest point. There is a triple pleated inverted pleat under the rose to give ease of movement. The shoulders are lightly padded & the long sleeves are pleated on to them to form a puff but narrow to the wrists. The dress is fully lined. A superb dress to wear with black stilettos & accessories for special occasions & celebrations.

Actual measurements: Bust 34" Length 44" Inside sleeve 16"
