Description

Black and white diagonally striped dress with a knee-length skirt, belted waist, long-sleeves, and a band that ties into a bow at the neck. Various seams on the skirt and bodice cause sections of the diagonal stripes to intersect at different angles. Sketch includes a view of the dress worn with a pink small-brimmed cone hat (in color), as well as a partial view of the back of the jacket (in black and white) that shows horizontal stripes throughout.
