Made of pure-white medium-heavy cotton, slight starched, gently contoured with black trim highlighting its fabulous nautical look. The loosing-fit comfortable bodice is deep vertical pleated on front view, displays an adorable sailor style collar piped in black fine lace-wire with V-shaped framed into pleats and pointed with cute bow. Squared shaped over shoulders the collar is split to the back where a long concealed zip fastens the dress. The short sleeve beautifully pleated on shoulder ends in V-point above the elbow.
