Description

Black crepe evening dress with a floor-length skirt, belted waist, and sleeveless bodice featuring a square neckline and pink satin stitched collar that resembles a sailor collar. Sketch (partially colored) also includes a small view of the back of the dress, which shows the pink satin collar falling over each shoulder into two large points with an open section in the middle of the bodice that exposes the wearer's skin.
