The gown has a coordinating detachable chantilly lace and freshwater pearl shrug. It is made of satin lining, net overlay, hand-beaded chantilly lace appliqué embellished with freshwater pearls, beads, and sequins. The gown's neckline is a deep sweetheart and the silhouette is fit and flare. The aforementioned detachable shrug is sheer, with matching beaded lace appliqué, and scallop trim. The gown has a chapel length train with a scalloped edge. You may notice some silver to the dress. The dress has pure silver threading used on some of the pearls and beads to give it a sheen. Incredibly beautiful in candlelight. And my Mom loved that scalloped edge!
