Description

Multicolor striped evening dress with a floor-length skirt and bodice with a wrap of shirred fabric that covers the shoulders and forms a knot at the center of the front bodice. Sketch (in partial color) also includes a small view of the back of the dress, which shows how the fabric that is knotted on the front bodice extends to the back and falls into a loose panel towards the bottom of the skirt.
