Description

Floor-length black crepe evening dress with asymmetrical bodice. The left side features thin straps while the right features an attached scarf that drapes from the top of the shoulder to the bottom of the skirt and is embellished by three large organza flowers. Sketch (partially colored) also includes a small back view of the dress, which mostly mirrors the front with the exception of the flowers and what appears to be shirring at the center waist.
