Description

This short-sleeved navy chiffon day dress has a deep V neckline, circular short sleeves, gathering along the shoulders, and pearls dispersed throughout the gatherings that continue into a swooping motion to the wrap bodice. The right side of the bodice is loose and wraps across to the left side. The waistline is in a triangle form pointing upwards to the centre-front neckline and continues along the back as a drop waist. There is a beige and pink border along the bottom of the dress that resembles plants and leaves blowing in the wind.
