Description

Grecian or Roman inspired evening dress featuring a floor-length skirt and thin string that wraps around the waist and chest. The bodice is formed by fabric that drapes over the chest and shoulders, creating one sleeve that falls off the shoulder and a small cape-like panel that hangs down from the back of the proper right shoulder.
