White crepe floor-length evening dress with a matching bolero jacket featuring long leg-of-mutton sleeves. Ensemble is worn with a gold kid scroll-shaped belt with pearl and jewel embroidery, and appears to have a design on the front of the dress and jacket sleeves made from shallow smocking. Sketch (in partial color) also includes a small view of the back of the dress showing a section of the bottom of the skirt that wraps around the back.
