Moire women's suit featuring a knee-length flared skirt with center pleats and a fitted collarless jacket with what appears to be two shirred waist pockets. Sketch also includes a view of the back of the jacket as well as the dress worn without the jacket, which reveals short sleeves that connect to the back, inverted pleats on the bodice, and small pleats on each side of the top of the skirt.
