Wedding dress made out of thin, cream-colored fabric. The dress shape is similar to that of a shift dress. The dress has short sleeves, that are hemmed at the ends, and the dress has a larger hem at the bottom of the dress (around 3 inches). The dress is embroidered with small, clear/crystallized beads that form 4 star-burst like designs. Two of those shapes are around each shoulder, one is around the stomach, and one is located at the bottom of the dress. These designs are mirrored on the opposite side of the dress.
