A Giambattista Valli Couture Green dress size 8. Made in Italy.
This acid green dress is quite something to behold. The fabric really catches the light. The camera simply does not do it justice. It’s the perfect dress for everything from a day at the races, cocktails or a special meal. The length makes it very versatile and I think anyone petite enough could wear it.
Gambattista Valli Couture Green Dress Bodice
The bodice is boned and fitted with a brassiere like arrangement (in thick green fabric) so you do not need to wear a bra. As the very top of the dress is sheer this would spoil the look of the dress. As well as boning and an extra layer of fabric (the corset/brassiere), the bodice is fully ruched and gives way to a very free skirt. The overall effect of the ruched bodice and full skirt is very flattering and would suit most figures.
There are no less than three layers of fabric to the skirt. The lining is silk and the middle layer is netting to give the skirt some volume. The outer layer has an intricate repeat pattern in two shades of green – an acid green and a forest green. The background colour is an acid green. The dress is too small for my mannequins but to give you an idea of the sizing the waist is about 11″ – 11.5″ measured straight across. The length is about 38.5″. There is a rear concealed zip. All tags present.
With the special boning and internal structure (brassiere) there is quite a weight to this dress. It just oozes quality.
