This stunning 80's maxi dress is a show stopper with some versatile advantages. A shawl that says Vamp
The Scarab Green color is one thing, but look closely at the webbing patterns in the organza fabric, so cool!
I am showing the wonderful backside of the dress with the shawl pulled up. Down, the sides are like bat sleeves that flow as you go.
You can easily wear the shawl over the shoulders to the front, or throw it in back and let loose.
The dress is fully lined with a garnet-red satin fabric. It feels like buttah. I think it's from Italy.
The style is a 1920's fit, curvy through the hips, not too tight in the waist, flared hem-line.
The dress has an old sizing tag in it that reads 48, after measuring it I say U.S size 14. (see measurements)
Each side of the shawl measures 25" long and 12" wide, the back section of shawl is 13" with a drape design.
Across the back of the dress, from side seam to side seam measures 17½". In the front, armpit to armpit is 22". Waist measures 32", hips up to 48", and the length is 53" from the armpit
This is one of those dresses you can show up in at any affair, any event.
Perhaps a night at the Opera or a Comic-Con Convention? This party dress gets invited everywhere.
