Lucile knew how to build a dress in layers with drapery. This neo-Directoire dress has a double-layered over-bodice with a vee neckline over a strapless décolleté under-bodice. This dress also has a very sheer under-skirt decorated with flowers and lace. The sumptuous under-skirt would have delighted Empress Josephine. A waist band and sash complete this wonderful dress.
