A cropped camisole top in rayon satin. Machine lace is appliquéd along the neckline and decorative machine embroidery following the lace motifs. The shoulder straps cross over at the back, and the body of the camisole has been cut on the bias with diagonal seaming at the underarms, presumably to minimise fabric waist.
