Description

Women's ensemble featuring a bell-sleeved crepe top printed with bright flowers and a calf-length black cloth skirt with a large bow tied at the left waist. Sketch also includes a view of a matching black cloth jacket with cape-like sleeves and a printed tie, as well as an alternate view of the ensemble without the jacket that reveals how the large bow is formed by long ends of black cloth and royal blue chiffon that tie together.
