Description

Medieval inspired wedding dress or costume featuring long sleeves with puffed shoulders and a floor-length skirt with train. The dress is made from both solid and patterned (possibly jacquard) fabric, which are presumably the same as the ivory colored fabric swatches that are attached to the sketch with a tag from Bianchini Ferier, Inc. The dress is worn with a torque hat with a long cascading veil that wraps under the chin.
