This is the perfect little black dress. The front is hand painted with bronze luminere which is gorgeous! Jewel neckline and capped sleeve make this piece so easy and comfortable to wear. The back is solid black as you can see in the pictures above. You can wear this top over your bathing suit or wear it over cropped pants and/or wear by itself. The length is 36"...Machine wash & dry or just wash and hang to dry. Cotton and rayon blend. So comfortable and definitely forgiving!
