Her cross over feature, boasts asymmetrical mock button fastenings, along the diagonal panel to the left hand side of the bodice. Her full length sleeves, trimmed with 3 button and loop fastenings to each cuff, frame the cinched in waistline.
In true 1930's fashion, the front of the skirt is accented by a triangular seam , with a 3 tiered ruffle to the right hand side, off-setting the diagonal panel along the bodice.
