The side seams along the bodice feature matching smocking stitches, that run to just below the waistline, drawing the eye to the cinched in waist by the gathered pleats joining the central seam. Her elegant panelled skirt skims the silhouette and falls in an elegant drape.
The back-line of the dress features button and hoop fastenings along the back of the nape, setting off a key hole feature, framing the elegant overlapping silk detail along the centre of the back, to join a simple waistband, decorated with 3 silver toned buttons.
