Her elegant sash then drapes into the skirt line in elegant pleats, sitting above the pleats of the skirt that drape from the waistband, setting off the wonderful gold threaded soutache embroidered hemline. The skirt is decorated with a scattering of soutache embroidered floral motifs, drawing the eye back to the wonderful design.
Lined in Silk, every detail of this piece showcases the incredible craftsmanship of the era.
