There is no way we can't but help love the Countess Dowager and her quick wit. Her style is classic Edwaridan elegance and this Edwardian style dress captures her style perfectly. The bodice features a full peplum, which tapers longer in the back, and lovely self-covered buttons finish the cuff and fasten the front. A crisp white taffeta chemisette (we would call it a dickey) with pearl buttons and a stand-up collar perfectly sets off the deep neckline at the front, and is included in the price. The straight-cut skirt features a comfortable elastic waist. Fabric is rayon and acetate. Dry clean.
