Violet strie satin floor-length evening dress with covered ring embellishments at the stomach and center neckline, which produce the effect of securing a short cape. Sketch (partially colored) also includes a small view of the back of the dress, which shows how the cape-like front forms the back of the bodice. The model is depicted with colorful cuff bracelets and holding a cigarette.
