The bust of the Crinkled Silk Godet Dress at MaxStudio
is typical of what you see from this company with the shirring, ruffles, and chain stitching there. What makes it stand out to us is the swingy hemline. It makes this dress extra-flirty! This dress also has a scoop neck, more of the ruffles and shirring at the back, and ruffles along the thick straps. It is 26 inches long from the waist, 100% silk, and lined.
