On the right hand side of the dress is a ballon sleeve with a cuff fastened with a fabric button and the on the left hand side is an extravagant bow which folds to the front. You can certainly appreciate the dress from the touch and see it was designed with great precision from the boning on the bodice, the subtle drapery of silk on the seam and the interior fabric inside the sleeve and bow to hold them in shape.
