Beautiful heavy satin dress with lovely beaded bodice in a heavenly shade of blue. Expertly constructed and shaped, the satin is backed with woven stiffener and there is a detachable crinoline tacked in. It is lovely and perfect for a graduation or other special event. The dress has been taken in quite a bit and there is lots of room to let several inches out. I do not see a tag but this is another treasure from our local VIP Hess estate and most of her dresses were purchased at Holt Renfrew so I'm sure it had a tag that was removed during the alterations. (Check out the last couple of photos to see just how much fabric is left in the seams of this stunning dress). There is a metal zipper up the back of the dress

Bust: 34"
Waist: 26"
Shoulder to waist: 17.5" - can be altered shorter or longer
Full length of dress: 42.5"

Please do not hesitate to ask any questions that you have about this delicious beauty.

This exquisite dress is one of the many fabulous items from the estate of Marmie Hess who was one of our VIPs here in Calgary. She lived here, in the same house, for the whole of her 100 year life and was an important cultural leader, rancher, teacher and champion of fine art. Her achievements are almost too many to list so I'm attaching a link so you can take a look at the life of this very inspirational woman.
