I love big dresses, but there is something about these mid century court gowns that's just absurd! Take a browse down the photos. It amazes me how very narrow this dress is from the side. It reminds me of a paper doll version of an 18th century gown -- wide from the front, disappears from the side!
I will say, though, I love the stomacher and pinked trim across the skirt. Very pretty.
