Red Cupid: Don't be fooled by the name, this dress will also be PERFECT for summer, 4th of July, Fall, and Holidays! It's a red and gold dress that can be used for so many themes! The lace on these dresses is so fun, with cascading gold sequins in varying sizes. This one features cherry red taffeta, a gorgeous shade with a beautiful but subtle shimmer.
The bodice pattern is a keyhole open back, with ribbon ties at the top. The waist is stretchy, and has loops sewn in at the sides to loop a ribbon sash through (sash is included), to cinch it at the waist.
The sleeves are a poofy elbow length, with an armhole that is generous enough to allow flexible sizing, but is not at all revealing at the side/chest of the bodice.
The skirting consists of one layer of lace, one layer of taffeta, and underneath that, 4 layers of crinoline that can be separated and poofed! (and under that, a satin lining, so the crinoline does not touch little legs!)
*Do not iron
*Wash in cold (tied up in a sheet), hang to air dry.
*Steam on low, without making direct contact with the lace. (You can still iron the taffeta on the skirt if needed, but do not iron the bodice or the lace).
