Tadashi dress, size 4/6
This black Tadashi dress has a V neckline with an interior sleeveless bodice and an exterior that gives an appearance of vertical (somewhat angled in the front) pleats.
The fabric is actually gathered (front and back) along the shoulder seams.
The seams extend outward about 4 1/4" past the shoulder pads, which causes the fabric to cascade downward, giving the appearance of a modified French cap sleeve.
In the front, 2" below the V neckline is a horizontal center seam (12 1/2" long) which has gathered fabric.
In the back, it starts 11 1/2" down and extends downward for 11".
The back has a 20 3/4' long zipper.
The dress is lined.
The outer full skirt is sheer and the inner full skirt (lining) is semi-sheer.
There are some snags along the bottom and upward to approximately 8" in a few places, which is to be expected since the skirt is so full it brushes against things as you walk or dance.
These "flaws" don't detract from the appearance of the dress.
