This is a custom, professionally sewn costume. All seams are finished by serging and straight stitched for strength and a professional finish. Nothing is left unfinished- avoiding any itchiness that would cause discomfort. We press each piece as it is assembled for the best possible appearance when complete. The two piece bodice and skirt are constructed of the most beautiful ice blue dupioni silk. The sleeves are side puffs are made from White/Silver Metallic brocade satin. The front of the bodice is accented with strings of beads and pearls. The back of the dress can be ordered with a zipper or a lace up back. Please notify us via etsy conversation or in the comments section during purchase as to which option you prefer. This dress, including the skirt, is fully lined to add to the comfort and quality. The headband is covered in silk and sparkles with light blue and clear Swarovski crystals The choker necklace is constructed of black velvet ribbon that attaches with a clasp and extension chain. This costume includes a set of adult size white matte satin gloves. This dress is pictured with a hoop petticoat that is included in the cost of the dress. We feel that this dress wouldn't look as stunning without the petticoat. This dress can be sewn in misses' sizes 2-14.
