Sexy black sleeveless panel slip dress by Moda International. This is one heck of an attention-getting dress with its form-fitted tailored cut bodice. The bust is a bra-like style with 2 thin ribbon straps. This dress is made up of lots of panels precisely cut to create an hourglass silhouette. The panels are deliberately sewn with open zigzag stitching between panels, which run length-wise down the bodice & skirt. The 1/8” zigzag stitch ‘gap’ between panels shows the white mannequins color underneath – not wide enough to be too revealing, but enough to show a hint of skin color. This style of stitching also runs straight across the bust area (just an fyi) and the ‘gap’ tends to be more visible on the more curvier areas of the body that spread the zigzag stitching, like on the butt, etc. Just another fyi. It features an 11” invisible back zip with a 7” back slit in the skirt, and fits like a glove. The fabric looks like a semi-shiny satin, but it is a cotton/silk blend that does NOT stretch. Be sure to check your measurements.
*NOTE: This is very small fitted dress, and the back zipper is not zipped to the top in the photo only due to the small size; however, the zipper is in perfect working condition and does zip to the top as illustrated in another pic. Though having said that, the dress also looks quite sexy partially zipped down. This LBD is pre-owned in excellent condition.
Measurements of apparel when listed are taken with the garment lying flat, UN-stretched, (then doubled for B-W-H.) Length measurements for dresses vary depending upon the cut/style, and can be taken from the shoulder, armpit, or front of garment, as noted. The measurements are approximate in many cases, due to variations in materials, cut/style of garment, darting (as in a bustline) that cannot always be precisely measured lying flat. Check the measurements, along with your own measurements just to be on the safe side, and do not rely on standard sizing, unless you’re certain of how you fit a particular designer.
The mannequin stands 5' 4" from the top of the neck down to the feet, which are 3-inch tippy-toes. Her measurements are 32"-24"-35". With a head she would likely stand 5’9” and be a size small or 4. Larger size garments are sometimes pinned on the mannequin or hanging torso dress form, to illustrate the proper fit. These are just some factors to keep in mind when viewing the proportions of the apparel in the photos.
