Black crepe dress with a calf-length skirt, elbow-length leg-of-mutton sleeves with black velvet trim, and two round passementerie ornaments pulled through knots in the fabric at the waist and on the left side of the neckline. Sketch (in partial color) depicts the model holding a cigarette and wearing what appears to be a small cone hat with short veil.
