This sublime dress is a knockout.  Completely original, probably French as it is in cotton gauze background.  So strong and wearable.


Covered in original beadwork, glass beaded background with gold sequined flowers organically placed front, back and neckline.


Would make a stunning wedding dress to create an instant aura of elegance and glamour.


Bust and Hips 36"

Sholulder to hem 40"


Note the Model in the photos is wearing her own slip which is not included with the dress.
