Gwtw4eveR for Amanda Original from film
The "Ruffle Dress" is also known as the
opening scene dress , the prayer dress or the "for love of Tara"
dress. The belt appears
black but is a very vivid red velvet. Gown is shown here over a 175
inch hoop. The dress is actually worn over a 191 inch bottom
circumference hoop. You can see the difference on the ruffle dress page in
Dee's and Marci's pictures. They both have the larger hoops
but are very different in height: one is 5'7 and the other is 5'2.
Gown requires a large heavy duty hoop.
