We used an additional petticoat for the picture that is not included with the dress. The elegant bodice feature is made out of fabulous soft tulle with rattail edge at the bottom. The skirt has 6 layers, top 1st , 2nd and 3rd layers are made of elegant soft tulle with a rattail edge. The 4th is a layer of soft satin lining, the 5th layer is an attached crinoline netting for additional fullness and the 6th layer is another layer of soft satin lining to bring comfort to your little girl while wearing the dress .* The back of the dress has a zipper closure and a tulle sash you can tie for a snug fit. *ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!
