Description

Navy wool dress featuring a knee-length skirt and short-sleeved top with bands of navy braids around the bottom of the skirt and around the armholes, which form loops on the top of the shoulders. A gilet of white and red polka dot fabric is exposed at the neckline of the blue top and in the cuffs of the sleeves. Sketch also includes a small view of a matching bolero jacket with braided bands around the bottom and sleeve cuffs. Sketch (in color) depicts the model wearing a hat that appears to have a short brim in the back and a long brim in the front.
