Description

Women's ensemble featuring a green velvet blouse with long puff sleeves and an ascot that is worn under a black wool dress with a calf-length skirt and sleeveless bodice. The sketch depicts the full front of the ensemble (in color), which is worn with what appears to be a pillbox hat with a green feather accent, as well as a partial view of the back of the ensemble that shows the black wool dress has a bolero style back that exposes the blouse underneath.
