Her high straight neckline points slightly along the centre and is framed by satin shoulder straps, which are in turn embellished , joining the elegant detailed bow design along the bust-line. Her fitted bodice, is accented by a cinched in waistline, that sets off the elegant and simple drape of the skirt line, which boasts pleats along the back.
Her lowered curved backline is framed by matching beadwork, that contrasts the design to the front of the dress, and completes this breathtaking piece in true 1950's fashion.
