Hourglass Velvet Dress with Satin Train
Brand Embers /Cinders
Sleek and chic, inky black velvet dress, dripping with shimmering jet back beads and delicate ribbon soutache.
This 50s party dress is a sleeveless, bustier dress, with sweetheart neckline. Fits like a glove through the bust and waist, and is made of silky soft jet black velvet.
The dress is embellished with black satin ribbon soutache, shaped into a leaf and curly-cue motif. The soutache is accented with sparkling black glass seed beads. Smaller bundles of dangling chandelier beads are arranged intermittently, dotting the velvet.
The back of the dress is cut low on the back, with a satin cascading train on the back of the skirt.
This stunner is partially lined with a center back zipper closure.
