This dress is elegant and timeless and perfect for a prom, wedding, or any formal event. I see a hip mother of the bride nearly stealing the show in this! So much hand stitching and hand beading that this is likely a one of a kind gown! Beautiful contrasting green rhinestones and toggle shaped beads overlaid on an intricately patterned gold metallic woven backing. The beading is in perfect condition! Scoop neck bodice with empire waist and demure little bow and self belt that is secured by hook and eye closures in the back. Richly and fully lined. Long hidden metal zipper closure in the back.
