Her neckline boasts lapels, decorated with trailing sequins in shades of soft pink and blush, framing the straight cut modesty panel.
Her cinched in waistline, is accented by a simple waist panel, and sets off the elegant long line drape of the crepe silk in the skirt.
Her breathtaking backline, features elegant rounded seams along the back left hand side beneath the waistline, that drape elegantly beneath a swag, that hooks along the top of the radiating seams.
