Strapless dress of dark blue wool and silk mix fabric. The boned bodice features vertically seamed panels. The knee-length skirt is constructed from one length of fabric, shaped into the waist with box pleats, hand-caught at points to create a diamond effect. The dress is fastened at the centre back with an invisible zip and is fully lined with black acetate.
