Long evening dress
By ‘David Jones 6th Floor’
This summer long dress is made of pique cotton cord fabric. The Irish crocheted flower embroidery is done with a mix of cotton threads and silk threads as well as glass beads and rhinestones. The flowers are appliquéd onto the dress. Thin spaghetti straps add a feminine touch as well as the wide fold-over panel across the bodice both front and back. A plastic zipper runs down the back of the dress. The bodice is fitted and the pleats at the waistband create a full skirt effect. The dress is fully lined with a bleached cotton muslin fabric.
Ribbed cotton is a material that is created using a particular weave that creates a surface to the fabric that includes raised lines or ribs.
