Description

Women's evening ensemble featuring a floor-length black velvet underskirt and a black taffeta tunic dress with a decorative net border around the top of the bodice and shoulder straps. Sketch (in partial color) also includes a small view of the back of the dress, which shows strips of fabric that are darted and crossed to form a very full bustle-like detail that is lined with horsehair.
