Black embroidered evening ensemble in what appears to be a floral pattern featuring an evening dress with a fringed floor-length skirt and a fringed shawl that crosses on the front and ties in the back. Sketch also includes a second view of the back of the shawl as well as a view of the dress without the shawl, which reveals the dress's pink chiffon bodice with red floral embellishments (colors indicated in text).
