Description

Pink satin evening dress with a floor-length straight skirt, thin straps, and a small ruffle at the top of the bodice that is connected to a satin cord pulled through casing. Sketch includes a full view of the front of the dress (in color) as well as a partial view of the back of the dress (in black and white) revealing two areas where pink cords are pulled through casings, which appear to be above long ruffles.
