Purple velvet evening dress with a floor-length skirt and what appears to be small square folds of fabric extending from the neckline towards the bottom of the skirt. Sketch (in partial color) also includes front and back views of a matching pink flannel jacket with godet pleats in the back and gold braid and jewel embroidery on the front waist pockets. Additionally, sketch depicts a small view of the back of the dress, which shows what appears to be a pleated panel at the bottom of the skirt and a long necklace that drapes down the center of the back.
