From Wikimedia. Their description - “Eemerald green silk velvet bodice and 12-foot train. Trimmed with silk fringe, velvet ruffles, and embroidered with clear glass crystals and silver sequins, foil and strip. Indianapolis Museum of Art no. 2006.3A-C. The skirt is of silver moiré. I don’t know if the skirt was actually worn with the bodice and train. The embroidery is shown in the next image.
