A stunning emerald green silk velvet evening gown. The front of the dress has a high and wide scoop neck and a large key hole in the centre with two slits on either side of the keyhole that look like button slits but are decorative. Running down either side of the keyhole and continuing right down the front of the whole gown is a painted gold design of swirls. The back of the dress has a very low v which reaches mid-back. The sleeves are extraordinary. They hit just above the elbow, are puckered at the top, then go very full and finally, they tuck under into an interior net lining which gives them a greater fullness. A hidden side zipper on the right hand side of the dress has been added to enable the dress to be tried on without damage. The dress is unlined.
