Description

Women's ensemble with a knee-length black wool box-pleated skirt, pale blue double-breasted coat, and light blue crepe blouse. Sketch (all in color) includes view of the full ensemble, worn with a small-brimmed black hat tied under the neck, as well as a partial view of the ensemble worn without the coat that reveals details of the blouse, including short-sleeves, a pleated and shirred yoke, bow, and what appears to be buttons along each side.
