A design favorite (our designers were inspired by a couture bathing suit they found from the 1950s), this ethereal gown is crafted from a beautifully textured dry linen, so it has a crisp feel with a subtle sheen that we absolutely love. The best part? The panel of sheer cotton ramie that's draped along the bodice and skirt, creating an elegant and airy feel and a to-die-for floaty movement (not to mention a chic bubble hem). Finished with a grosgrain ribbon belt encrusted with pearls, glass beads and sequins. Strapless silhouette with modified sweetheart neckline. Fitted bodice. Interior corset for added support. Back zip. Straight skirt. Fully lined in silk. Falls to floor. Part of the J.Crew Collection. Import. Dry clean. Specially packaged in a custom-made box to ensure your gown is always as beautiful as the first day you wear it. Catalog/jcrew.com only.
