Embodies the quintessential elements of an elegant romantic party dress, Alyssa elevates the Melissa top to a dramatic scale for special occasions. The lace of the skirt sweeps down to the hem and unfurls as beautiful edging while the scalloped front slit adds an extra feminine touch. The pretty mesh waistband gently contours the waist and allows the option of weaving a ribbon or sash through to further accentuate your curve. Make it in black or white for classic elegance, or go dramatic with a bright, vibrant colour. The unique construction requires no seam sewing and enables you to easily customize the dimensions. Adjust the skirt length and turn Alyssa into a peplum top, mini dress or floor-length gown, with or without the front slit, as you like.
