Description: Shimmering Thai silk, in all the colours of the rainbow, has been used to create this magical gown. Backsmocking creates gentle ripples between satin stitched lines on the bodice, while the waistline is heavily encrusted with bullion embroidery reflecting the colours of the fabric. The same embroidery decorates the piped sleeve bands. The lavish blue sashes that tie at the back are kept perfectly in place with embroidered sash keepers.
