This is a wonderful black crepe cocktail party dress with beaded bodice and decorative back panel. The dress has an empire waist and an open back. The panel at the back of the dress is decorated with two bows and six buttons and covers the metal zipper that does up the back. The dress is much larger than my mannequin so was pinned back for the photo - the silhouette may have less of an accented waistline on the properly fitting body.
