Description

Sleeveless evening dress featuring a floor-length, very full skirt mostly covered in a fabric that appears to be lace. The same lace also covers the top of the bodice and extends down the center of the front torso in a narrow band. Notes indicate that this dress was intended to be worn with a jacket featuring lace buttonholes, although it is also possible that the sketch is depicting a sleeveless jacket.
