Pressed gold metal sequins adorn the shoulders and waist in glorious Deco style. Divine! True goddess style from the golden age of Hollywood. New York Creations label. Rayon crepe fabric. Hidden side zip for ease. Good condition, structurally sound with no damage to the fabric. Two missing sequins on the back of the dress. A faint water stain and small repair on the front of the skirt, and a water stain on the back of one hip. The flaws on the front of the skirt get lost in the folds of fabric. A little color change at the underarms, and soiling at the hem. The side seams of the bodice have been altered. See photos. She presents flawlessly and is sure to stop any room.

The flat measurements in the product description are the actual measurements of the garment when laid flat. Double the chest, waist and hip measurements for an idea of fit. Please remember to allow a little "space" in a garment beyond your body measurements for ease and a good fit.

If you are uncertain about fit you can measure a similar garment you own that fits you well and compare the measurements with the product. You can use the image below as a guide.
