Its loose upper portion fell in large folds over the upper part of the torso and was weighted in its lower corners with metal drops.

Fortunys adaptation included terminating the over fold in deep points weighted by small glass beads.

Label: orange on muslin



The pleats in the fabric allow the gown to expand to fit a range of sizes.
