Oh where to begin? Fabulous lush textured velvet and shimmering taffeta made up with beautiful attention to detail. A rich patterned textured velvet in your choice of rich copper or deep burgundy makes up the polonaise bodice. The fitted bodice has a high neckline and sleeves with a gentle pouf at the shoulders. The sleeves are caught just above the elbow, and then continue with a ruffle of the same lush velvet fabric. The hemline of the bodice “cuts away” from the center front to form deep points on either side, and a deeply pleated long peplum that has the look of an trained overskirt at the back. The entire hemline has a deep flounce of the same velvet fabric as the bodice. Taffeta covered buttons close the front. The full taffeta skirt features a deep band of ruching over an equally deep flounce at the hemline. If you order the copper velvet, your skirt will be matching taffeta, if you order the burgundy velvet, the skirt will be black taffeta. 63% Acetate/37% Rayon Velvet/Acetate Taffeta skirt – please dry clean only.
