For Faith


The "Ruffle 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.
