Herbert Sondheim, Inc
8.75 in (width) x 11.75 in (height)
Navy taffeta evening dress featuring a floor-length skirt with a long train and red velvet ribbon near the bottom edge. The bodice of the dress appears to be formed by twists and folds that provide a square neckline in the front and a plunging v-neckline in the back, as shown in a separate view of the rear side. The back view also reveals what appears to be a bustle-like folded accent attached to bands of shirring.
