Her straight cut neckline is framed by wide silk satin shoulder straps, that twist together along the back of the shoulder line, and join the back of the waistline in a cross back detail. Her fitted bodice is accented by a bias cut, set off by five dart details along either side of the waistline, that draw the eye to the cinched in waist. Her elegant bias cut skirt line, skims the figure in true 1930's design, whilst boasting wonderful seam work to the back of the skirt, creating effortless drape to the bias cut silk.
