Women's evening ensemble featuring a floor-length straight dress of unknown color and a blue coat with white and gold embroidery on a wide lapel and on the edges of two waist pockets. Sketch (partially colored) also includes a view of the back of the jacket and the dress worn without the jacket, which reveals long sleeves and what appears to be slits coming down from each shoulder.
