This is a brilliant frock for cavorting in the cool waters of Trivali Fountain at 4am while singing "Dancing Queen". The full skirt is created with exquisite imported Swiss silk fabric that is embroidered and appliquéd, then sprinkled with a scattering of clear crystals. The appliquéd fleurs are charmingly three-dimensional. This is a 2 7/8 yard piece, 54” wide, and costs $1,995 for the length. The bodice is made of a soft ivory silk Mikado which is 56” wide and $59.99 a yard. The waistline is enhanced with pliant double-faced black satin ribbon, and the choker is fashioned of a pair of beaded trim appliqués. The silk organza skirt is held beautifully aloft by 50 yards of 72” wide black nylon net.
