Ethereal vintage raw silk and velvet dress. Featuring dramatic puff sleeves, fitted bodice, skirt gathered under the waistline with one pocket. Fastens with statement jewel buttons on the bodice. The bodice and sleeves are lined. Made from soft and flowy raw silk fabric and thick soft velvet. Black bodice with rainbow checked skirt and sleeves in the shades of green, red and blue.
The dress was too tight under the waist on the mannequin so the fabric was not hugging the bodice properly.
