The gown features shoulder straps and off-the-shoulder flared chiffon sleeves. The sleeves have pleats and are cut with a V-shaped point at the shoulder. The bodice has a V-shaped neckline back and front.

The embroidered border is based on a 12th century stone carving and used to define an empire line cut under the bust and also as a long girdle belt. This style is inspired by 12th century gowns with crossed embroidered girdle belts.The gown is laced down the back, with handmade cords, through hand-sewn holes.All hems and details are hand-finished.

The gown is made from hand-woven Dupion silk with sleeves in crinkled chiffon.

It is fully lined with acetate satin.
