This silk gown can be worn for the afternoon or for Dinner. It's made of a greenish-yellow silk,with one layer of a royal blue net over the silk. It gives it a lovely shade similar to something you would see on a peacock. The bodice drape and the apron are trimmed with a vintage lace. The apron has lovely silk ribbon embroidery. Tiny gross grain ribbon bows of a matching hue to the silk are used to finish the trimming. Just a little on the fancy side for afternoon tea, but why not?
