Title Dress, Prom
Object Name Dress
Description The top layer of the dress is lace with a flower pattern at the top and just mesh toward the bottom. The top of the dress covers the chest and is in a heart shape and goes around the back just below the shoulders. There is a zipper up the proper left side of the top waist of the dress. The skirt flares from the waist down. There are mesh frillies within the lace and the lace only goes half-way down the dress before it turns into mesh. The lace ends in a loop style and at the points between each loup is a small cluster of paper flowers. At the top of the dress are three buttons above each side of the chest. A mesh halter hooks to all six of these and creates a halter top strap around the neck. Colors: light blue
