This dress is so fun. The top is black, ribbed material that feels like a soft sweater. It has 3/4 sleeves. The bottom is cream with black and brown animal print, and the material is a buttery soft jersey fabric. There is a tie attached at the sides that ties at the front. There is a thick band across the back. This dress has the illusion of being a high waisted skirt and top. This dress does run small. If you are busty, we recommend you size up as the fabric becomes see through when pulled too tight. Model is 5'10" and wearing a 1X.
