Black cloth women's ensemble with a calf-length straight skirt and box jacket with seal skin sleeves. Sketch (partially colored) also includes a front and back view of a pink ottoman blouse worn under the jacket, which has short sleeves and a large open section on the back that reveals the wearer's skin. The ensemble is worn with what appears to be a matching scarf and hat with birdcage veil.
