Dance Bling dress made in 2016 for Prelim dancer. From smoke free home stored in a flat clean wedge dance bag. Dancer is now retired. Worn a handful of times, no wear in the material and is in excellent condition. Dress is made of beautiful black velvet with hot pink, orange and purple ombré accents. There is stunning color transition from shoulders to bottom of skirt down the front and back. Updated traditional style box pleated skirt. Small Mandarin style collar. Tons of A.B. crystals including large pear shape on front and back. Also various colored crystals matching the embroidery all over the dress. None missing that I can see. (Will include extras of what I have in case one happens to fall off.) The sleeves include a black-on- black diamond shape stitch pattern with black crystal accents. Top of shoulders are highlighted with a slight lift and fold detail at the end of the shoulders, see extra photo link for details. Dress has never been altered, at least two inches of let out and let down available. Sale Includes matching headpiece and number holder. Very clean embroidered dance wedge bag with two dowels and working zippers also included in sale. *Unique feature :We sewed a small picture of Shrek on the inside back lining of the dress as per the dancers request, easily removed with scissors.

Especially the photo of Shrek.
