Description
The dress in metallic green polyester organza is entirely pleated and heatset both vertically and horizontally. The horizontal pleats are dense and irregular, while the vertical pleats are broader, creating a corrugated effect. The dress is sleeveless with a wide, round neckline. The sides of the dress are cut with an exaggerated curve forming a bell-shaped silhouette, the fabric falling longer at the sides than at the centre front.
