1980s Oscar de la Renta Pale Pink Taffeta, Lace & Chiffon Pouf Sleeve Dress

This is a dress that was from the ODLR wedding line and is a pretty confection of pale pink taffeta and chiffon. The skirt is lovely, full length and has lots of fullness to it. This gives it a touch of volume. A pretty pleating detail circles the lower portion of the skirt. Above that is a paler shade of pink chiffon bodice that has a touch of a transparency to it. The neckline is cut straight across and wide. It fits loosely over the bodice. Each sleeve is cut to the elbow with a ruffle finish and has tremendous volume. They pouf out for full on drama and there is even tulle built in  to each sleeve to make sure the shape is kept. Two rows of that same pleating detail as on the skirt run down either side of the front. It has a swath of pink lace set across the shoulders and another touch of the same lace down the front. A wide, long taffeta sash that matches the skirt cinches in the waist. In person it has an even more poufy and has more a feeling of fullness then how it photoed. Excellent condition

The skirt has a inner skirt lining in a matching pink silky rayon and the top is lined with a second layer of the chiffon. Each sleeve has built in tulle to add volume. It closes with a back painted metal zipper. Has its matching sash. It appears to have been worn very little, if at all.
