Avante Garde Pastel Green Ruched Dress
Brand Embers / Cinders
This product is unavailable
- Pastel green dress with avant garde ruching, dramatic sleeves and whimsical ribbon details.
- This appears to be a costume piece likely created for some type of performance as it has some "quick change elements" to its design. The dress is a pull-over style with closures only on the right shoulder, in a series of hidden hook and eye closures then further concealed by a row of hidden snaps.
- The dress has elastic gathers running horizontally along the entire body pf the dress at regular intervals. These can be played with to be "fluffed" or "poofed" to create more volume, or, the dress pulled down to flatten the volume of created by the elastic gathers. This is adjustable the entire length of the dress and can be arranged to create volume in the hips but then flattened to create and narrower silhouette at the waist should the wearer want to.
- The sleeves are like voluminous princess sleeves, made of sheer chiffon with a ruffle along each wrist. Bear in mind the sleeves are exaggerated and long, with pastel green ribbons attached at regular intervals that tie into whimsical bows.
- The dress is partially lined, but only with an interior panel that partially conceals the bust and waist, left open at the sides.
