Striking, lightweight, blue velvet and white sparkle satin dress by Ginny Sleziak of “Sew What” Designs. The blue knotwork features a sparkle-fabric design, the white sparkle-satin shines from any angle, and the knotwork is highlighted by clear Swarovski crystals throughout to really sparkle on stage (see the first photo – crystals were added after the bottom photo taken). The velvet bodice is bordered by chains of crystals for increased sparkle-y-ness. This dress is surprisingly comfortable to dance in because it is lightweight, and looks great on stage due to the high contrast of the main colors and the sparkle of the Swarovski crystals. Bloomers, shawl/cape, matching crystal & fabric crown (see bottom photo), as well as replacement clear Swarovski crystals (in case you leave some sparkle on the stage), are included.

Condition: The dress is in excellent condition and has all its crystals intact. The blue competition number “flower-clip” is missing one blue crystal and there are a couple stones missing on the back cape-button (both of these can be easily replaced, although neither is noticeable). The dress has no odor (smokefree-home, always worn with a tank top and under-arm guards, and always sprayed with “Fresh Again” and aired properly). Additional photos available on request.
