Vintage Helen Sykes Size:L royal-blue special occasion dress

£29.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Gorgeous special occasion dress from Helen Sykes, the renowned Leeds-based fashion retailer. In royal-blue sheer fabric, the main feature of the dress is the cut out & sequin-covered leaf shapes, some of which stand proud of the fabric. The dress has a round scoop neckline & fastens at the back with a long hidden zip. The dress has a loose shape to the dropped waistline on to which the skirt is gathered. The sequinned leaves are sparser on the skirt & fade out below the hips. The skirt has considerable fullness at the crimped hemline. The shoulders are padded & the sleeves short & covered with sequinned leaves which form a pretty shaped edge. The dress is fully lined with a stiffened hem to give the skirt a little extra weight & swing.
A lovely dress for a special family celebration or dinner dance.
[Please note: there are some small marks on the front of the bodice which might respond to dry cleaning].
Actual measurements: Bust 42" Length 51"
