Description

Medieval inspired dress featuring long sleeves, buttons along the back bodice, and a floor-length full skirt with train. The sleeves have long panels extending down from the back shoulders and appear to be made from a patterned fabric that is also used to make a decorative trim found on the skirt hem and bodice. The dress is worn with a veil and heart shaped hat known as a "hennin", which appears to be made from the same patterned fabric.
