Panel is trimmed on each side with narrow black velvet ribbon and has six black velvet diamond inserts. Skirt is lined with beige cotton fabric. The hem is trimmed with a self-fabric ruffle of box pleats with narrow black velvet ribbon trim stitched around the center of the pleats.
A long black silk crepe train is tacked to the waistband. Train is finished with a self-fabric ruffle. A crimson silk damask pannier, gathered along the lower edge to create a "balloon" effect is tacked to the train. Wide silk ribbons printed in a red and green impressionistic floral pattern are attached under the front edges of the train and at the back center waist. A wide band of black net lace with scalloped bottom edge is tacked to the waistband on either side of back opening and loops down over the pannier.
