Description

Aubergine organza evening dress with what appears to be loose vertical ruffles that extend from the top of the shoulders to the bottom of the floor-length skirt, creating a bustle-like detail in the back. Sketch also includes a partial view of the front of the dress, which shows that the ruffle details are twisted at the shoulders and extend down both sides of the front bodice. Dress features a square neckline and also appears to have shirring at the waist. The letters "AB", which are written in the text, may refer to designer Augustabernard.
