Dress X15758

Really beautiful 1 year old Gavin Doherty Championship dress. Reluctant sale but DD has broken ankle and will be out of dancing until New Year :-(
Rich black velvet bodice with knotted Celtic heart design in gold embroidery over holographic sequins and filled in with deep purple satin. Rows of AB crystals surround and radiate from the central design to form a sash effect and the bodice is dotted with large pear-shaped AB crystals.
Further purple highlights found around raised collar trim and on the jewelled satin bow at the back. Underskirt is white netting with a final layer of purple satin next to the dancer’s skin. This flashes beautifully as the dress moves (and is also very practical, helping to avoid unsightly fake tan marks!)
Shoulders, cuffs and the up-to-the-minute soft pleated skirt are all in white ‘twinkle’ satin, edged with gold sequin braid.
Sale includes purple satin kick pants and black velvet jewelled headband.
Dress is in amazing condition and has been stored flat in a smoke free home.
First made-to-measure dress, very special and well loved, needs a good home and plenty of exercise :-)
