Dress - Champagne Silk Dress and Cape
Dress of champagne silk with matching cape. The dress has short sleeves, a high waist, and a rounded neckline with tulle lining the edges of the sleeves.
The cuffs are decorated with pleated ruffles and ribbons and the front of the skirt is accented with a vertical row of eight bows. The hem is edged with piping and the dress interior is lined with book muslin.
There is boning in the bodice of dress. The train in back uses a hook and eye closure system. A bow accents the closure at the neck of the cape. The cape's edges are decorated with ribbons and the tucks are scalloped. The cape is also accented with bows down the back.
Donated by Ms. Sandy Ludlow.
