CAPRI Size 16 Ladies Designer Black Gold Evening Dress & Jacket Wedding Outfit

A stunning CAPRI by MON CHERI Black, Cream, Pale Gold & Brown, Beaded, Lined, Silk Chiffon, Maxi Dress (very long) with Matching Silky Jacket, Size UK16(but please do see all the measurements and sizing advice that I have given below, labelled US14 equating to a UK16. The Dress is extremely long – please see below for ideas on how the Dress could be shortened) in excellent condition, worn once only on a Cruise. Although I can see no marks at all, I have allowed for a dry cleaning bill on top of the price so that you can have it professionally cleaned and pressed before a special occasion if you wish - no damage. Weight approx. 400g


This gorgeous outfit comprises a very long 3 layered Dress and matching floral Jacket, both with pretty bead decoration. The plain black material is a silk chiffon and the floral material is a silk devore. The colours in the photos are quite a good match on my laptop, but Betty (my model) isn’t really tall enough to do this gorgeous outfit justice – please see below for measurements and suggestions on how the Dress could be shortened...


The sleeveless Dress is fully lined in a black silky material. There are 3 layers (including the lining) with the top layer at the bodice being in a floral silk devore material with delicate gold/bronze beading all around the hemline which finishes just below the waist. The top plain black silk chiffon layer starts at the top of the Dress and finishes about 6” above the lower layer of black silk chiffon, which starts at about waist level, attached to the lining. The two black silk chiffon layers have a lovely staggered hem line and each has the same pretty gold/bronze beading decorating the hem line. The Dress has a scooped neckline and 1.5” (bra friendly) wide shoulder straps. It is slip on style with no zips or buttons. This Dress is extremely long (please see below for measurements and ideas on how it could be shortened if necessary)


The matching Jacket is unlined and floaty with no fastenings. The open edge front drapes in a lovely waterfall style and the 3/4 length sleeves have shaped cuff lines. There is pretty gold/bronze beading decorating the open edge front, hem line and cuff line.


This is a superb classy, dressy outfit for any special occasion – I think it would make a wonderful outfit for a Mature Bride, Mother of the Bride/Groom, Wedding guest, Cruise Wear, Dinners, Parties and Races etc.


Necklace not included.


If you are buying this for a special occasion why not recoup some of the expense and re sell after the event for someone else to enjoy...


Material – 100% Silk – Lining 100% Polyester - Dry Clean


The size label states size 14 – This is USA sizing and equates to a UK 16 - the Outfit is cut on the bias and the Jacket is floaty and non-fastening, so there is a bit of give. The Dress is extremely long. I am 5’ 8” and would need to wear 5” or 6” heels to wear this Outfit.  If the Dress needed to be shortened I would either shorten the under layer at the hem (& lose the pretty beading off the lower layer) or have the under layer shortened at the waist, where it joins the lining. Please do check all the measurements that I have given below, not forgetting to allow a little extra on top of your actual measurements for room to breathe, eat, move and sit...


Please check the measurements below carefully to avoid disappointment. Measurements have been taken with the garments laid flat at the stated point.


If in doubt, I’d suggest measuring an item that you have that fits you well and compare the measurements – it works for me!


Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions.
