The waist accentuating front panel of the fitted velvet bodice is made of satin with a Chantilly lace overlay and is adorned with a black satin rose at the centre front of the neckline. The front panel, scoop neckline, shoulder straps and the lower part of the bodice are trimmed with fine velvet ribbon and black scalloped Venetian lace. The full skirt consists of three layers of which the shorter top layer is gathered Chantilly lace with black satin roses. The lace layer in the middle is also gathered with satin roses and runs until the bottom. Use a petticoat for more volume or a hoopskirt to add pure drama.
