1970s Halston Rich Purple Velvet Deep Plunge Dress
Fully lined, including the sleeves, in a purple silk that is hand set. It slips on to wear with elastic that runs through the waist. Each cuff closes with a snap. The velvet shows variations in the way the plush of the velvet lays so a couple of small areas catch the light differently. I don't feel like this is a true flaw but mentioned for accuracy. The elastic waist and easy cut will allow it to fit a variety of sizes.
Sleeves: 27" approx.
Bust: 17.5-19" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 11.5-16" flat across from side seam to side seam
Bodice: 13" from top of bodice to waist
Skirt: 35" from waist to hem
