"Poised for her encore performance, a dainty ballerina adjusts her pointe shoes, surrounded by romantic bouquets from her adoring audience on this wistful silk print.

A profusion of lustrous silk ribbons in muted shades of rose, wisteria and palest pink are embroidered on the bouquets and tutu.

Tiny beads form the leotard and delicate, handmade paper arum lilies highlight the upper bouquet.
