Full-length dress in black silk taffeta. The high neck is closed with a standing band collar made of black velvet. The full-length two-piece raglan sleeves are trimmed with lace along the upper seam, and trimmed with a narrow band of black velvet along the cuff. The straight bodice is devoid of shaping darts or panel, and run straight from the base of the neck to low hip. Layered skirting attaches at the hip: it's made of a taffeta lining layered with 4 tiers of dotted netting trimmed with lace. The garment closes via a covered zipper running from neckline to hip along center back.
