Description

Floor-length evening dress with a sweetheart neckline, thin straps, a large floral embellishment at the center of the chest, and what appears to be sections of shirring on the skirt and neckline. Dress also includes what is possibly long strips of fabric hanging from jewel clips at the armholes, although it is uncertain how they are actually connected.
