This is a gorgeous 1950s era party dress made with a top layer of eyelet silk organza over a taffeta base. The eyelets are made in a daisy shape and are arranged in vertical panels that alternate between opaque and semi-transparent. The dress has black velvet spaghetti straps and is decorated with a black velvet bow at the waist. The dress was posed with a crinoline underneath - no crinoline is provided, so to get the same 50s full skirt look you would need to own or acquire a crinoline. It does have some tulle on the interior. The dress does up the back with a metal zipper.
