Following the line of the body the dress ends with a diagonal hemline extending from the proper left hip to proper right mid-calf. The lowest point features draped "handkerchief" style panels attached at back and front sections and side split. The proper right side features a panel decorated with assorted found items at proper left side with a zip.
