  Color is more accurate here.  Royal blue silk satin, cream crinkle silk.
First pic, the color is truer, 2nd is in better focus. Sleeve and edge of neck details.  Again, the yellowish cast photo is clearer.
Lacking and trim ribbon is velvet, bluish green.  
Blouse is cream crinkled silk.  The edges are finished.  It's hard to tell if the gather line of the blouse (about 1" down) is cord or thin elastic. Gold tone with inset pearls and center sapphire.  Necklace also has a small relate of pearl and sapphire beads.
