This dropped-waist gown is crowned with a luxuriously beaded bodice.  A patchwork of hand-cut motifs is appliquéd on a beaded net, forming a faux v-neckline and scalloped cap sleeves, continuing onto the back to spotlight a seemingly floating string of covered buttons. The grandiose bodice is softened by the skirt’s swathing layers of French tulle fluttering with each movement and ending in a court-length train.
