Long-sleeved brown and white printed chiffon dress with a knee-length flared skirt, belted waist, and brown taffeta flower embellishment on the proper left side with a brown taffeta sash hanging underneath. The sketch depicts a view of the front of the full ensemble (in color), which includes a very wide-brimmed brown hat and brown gloves, as well as a partial view of the back of the dress (in black and white) that shows a slit at the bodice and up the skirt, revealing a brown petticoat worn underneath.
