Description

Set of three sketches in partial color. Clockwise from top left: black slipper satin floor-length coat with a stand-up collar, black braided frogs on the chest with rhinestone buttons, and elbow-length puff sleeves; black cape lined with green fabric over a green waistcoat and black skirt; what appears to be a view of the same green and black ensemble without the cape and waistcoat, which shows a short-sleeved green crepe blouse.
