No wear to the dress itself, it's in fabulous condition. However, the back has an added panel, near the zipper, to make the waist bigger. Enlarge the photo of the back view to see. It's not particularly noticeable or, if you prefer, can be disguised with a little ingenuity. It's an absolutely stunning dress
A classic beauty with great depth to the fabric. It really shimmers and the jacquard has a good weight to it that makes it fall beautifully. It is difficult to come across sophisticated evening dresses with long sleeves and this one rings all the bells. Cleaned and ready to wear.

Unfortunately, the pandemic has resulted in a backlog of parcels worldwide. Our local Postal Service continues to operate at increased capacity and assures us that packages will arrive at their destination, albeit with a noticeably longer timeframe.
We now offer an alternate express delivery service via DHL for those of you who want your packages more expediently. I understand that this option is currently delivering packages within a seven-day timeframe from collection.
This item is within our selling stock. In the unlikely event that two buyers purchase this item concurrently, payment will be immediately refunded to the latter purchaser. We apologise in advance should this rare circumstance arise.
We make every effort to post your item within 1-3 days of payment. Should a circumstance arise where we are unable to post within this timeframe (eg we are away at a fair) we will contact you immediately. Please note that our postage charges are based on standard international and domestic air packages - all with tracking. If you want to upgrade to express postage or require insurance, please contact us prior to checkout and we will adjust the rates accordingly.
Yes we do offer flexible layby/layaway options and are open to negotiation as to the time period. Obviously, the more expensive the item the longer the time you will have to finalise payment. Contact us to see how accommodating we can be :)
Obviously, as these are one- off pieces, the fit may not be quite what you need. To this end, we also offer an alteration service by professional seamstresses. Please shoot us an email outlining what you want and we will quickly respond with a quote and timeframe. Costs are kept to a minimum for this service.

Whilst we take care with the colour balance of our photos, individual computer monitors register colours differently depending on their calibration.
