Somewhere between Red and Pink lies the shade of this dress. Magenta? Puce? I call it Stunning! Color is captured perfectly in these natural light photos. Print is a fabulous black line work botanical print of roses, leaves, rosebuds, and stems.
The Essence of Femininity! Jewel neckline, high waist, pleated at waist, front is draped almost like panniers, but unlined and shaped to the natural female form. Inverted box pleat at center of draping gives the dress quite a lot of movement. and interest at front. Long, set in sleeves taper to cuff, metal invisible side-zip. Belt loops, but no belt, would look great with a black ribbon belt, but looks lovely without one! Back of dress is a smooth silhouette. Made by Tobie, NYC.
