Black organza evening dress with green slip. Dress features a wide floor-length skirt, sleeveless bodice, and plaid fabric that borders the hem of the slip and ties around the neck with ends that extend down to the center of the skirt. Sketch also includes a very small view of the back of the bodice showing that the plaid tie creates a cowl shape (not on front).
