A dress Morticia would die for! How gorgeous is this gothic vintage piece?
Hints to handmade lie in the handstitched hem and tailoring detail - plus no labels. Although aged, the original zipper works well and the dress is fully lined in black polyester. I had to make a couple of repairs in the lining which can't be seen from outside and one in the lace - I have photographed but believe me, it is hard to spot.
The wide scooped neckline has a narrow shoulder line which attaches to superb sheer sleeves that are gathered at the cuff and fasten with a small prestud. The bust has been shaped and the bodice has an empire line with a 2" bronze ribbon bow attached around it's waist. The ribbon has a two tone effect and has been folded, the fold line crumples slightly towards the back.
The hem sits just above the ankle on my mannequin - which is on the tall side. 
A classy, timeless dress that has a unique quality thanks to it's handmade heritage.
