Royal blue silk and lace fit and flare dress for Victoria

sweetheart neckline special occasion dress with lace sleeves

Victoria commissioned this stunning dress in royal blue silk dupion and lace.

The fit and flare dress was lightly boned with ruching from underbust to an asymmetric line under the hip. The fitted bodice had a sweetheart neckline and was covered in scrolling lace which was also used for the three quarter length sleeves.
