Sorry, this item has sold.

From the 1980s (in case you couldn't tell), a party dress with all the best 80s features.

  • High-quality cotton velvet in a deep-purple-and-black, subtle floral print
  • Sleeves for days! Not just puffy, but double layer, creating a tulip silhouette
  • Bodice features a sweetheart neckline, princess seams, and slightly dropped waist
  • The back! Open, plunging "bow" design, without a too cute actual bow. The center "knot" has stretch, making this dress extra comfortable. As with the sleeves, the back is made up of two layers, each lined in silky solid black
  • Full, unlined skirt to wear with or without a crinoline (displayed for you with a small petticoat, not included)
  • Side zipper closure
  • Made in Hungary
