Milana is a close fitting dress with an accentuated waist. The shaping on the top front is achieved with bust and waist darts, as well as a center seam. The front features a seam situated 5cm above the natural waist, and the back bodice is shortened and is composed of two sections which tie together to form a bow with long tails. The back skirt is not attached to the back bodice and has a curved elasticated gathered waistline. Both the front and the back have a V neckline with flounces. The flounces are at their widest around the shoulder seams, and taper to their narrowest at the center front and back. The bottom of the dress also features a flounce. Milana is above-knee length.
