Truly glamourous bright lime green and cantaloupe semi-sheer silk chiffon maxi dress...
Paper thin crepe silk exterior, gathered at the wides of the shelf bra style bodice.
Structured plastic bone sewn within the princess seams.
Two roses at the side with long attached sashes.
Fitted nonelastic waistline with full-length, narrow silhouette skirt.
Rolled chiffon spaghetti straps and center back metal zipper with metal hook-loop.
Fully lined in lightweight, crisp lime green taffeta.
This dress looks fabulous but there are small holes spread throughout and the chiffon wrap on the straps is frayed.
No issues are an eyesore by any means, this dress is very old and so delicate by the nature of the fabric.
With that in consideration, its condition is actually quite nice.
I have had this cleaned, it's been steamed and would make for a lovely summer wedding guest dress.
