This is a royal blue midi dress with short sleeves and a small peplum effect at the hips. It zips up the back with an invisible zipper and hook and has a small slit at the front of the neckline, which is rather high on the neck. Rounded darts go from shoulder seam to waistband, then go straight from below the waistband down the front of the skirt, which cuts in at the knee in a pencil shape. There are also straight darts down either side of the zipper in the back, which helps disguise the zipper's path. There is some slight gathering at the tops of the shoulders, but not much. Fabric has no stretch and is machine wash cold.
