This dress is made of a crisp, taffeta-like fabric. The vertical stripes are somewhat iridescent. The crystal buttons are decorative, and this dress closes with a side- zipper. Unfortunately this dress didn’t work for the actress, so wasn’t used. Still very pretty.
I managed to find a remnant of this fabric that I intend to turn into a corset at some point. The colors are just so beautiful. More photos are in this Facebook album.
