This is a dress that I have worn for awhile, it is one of the earlier dresses that my mother passed on to me. I even have photos of me wearing this on our miniature cruise from many years ago. I think that this dress was one of the ones that my mom inherited from my grandmother via my great aunt. There is a duplicate of this one in black that I also have inherited and love. These are for sure handmade, and what I think is crazy, is that this dress is labeled a size 10. Alrighty then....The silk is so heavy and sumptuous, I feel very lucky to have these to take care of.
