Traina-Norell shirt dress with a small collar, calf-length full skirt, three-quarter length sleeves, and an all-over dotted print in floral shapes that are mimicked with matching buttons. The dress is worn with a belt, pearl necklace, solid pumps, long gloves, and a bonnet-style hat with a large feather on the top and straps that tie under the chin. The model is shown between two chairs with a decorated backdrop. This photograph was part of a larger scrapbook that can now be found in Box OSx-2, Folder 12.
