Floor-length evening dress featuring a sweetheart bodice, very full skirt, and thick shoulder straps made from wide ribbon. The oversized ribbon is also attached to the sides of the waist and extends down towards the knees. A small view of the back of the dress indicates that the ribbon is also found on the back skirt with an additional layer underneath that extends closer to the hem.
