Back view of a maroon jersey evening dress with elbow-length sleeves, a short flounce shirred on the back of the floor-length skirt, and a triangular cut-out on the back of the bodice with a bow tied at the neckline. Sketch (in partial color) also includes a smaller view of the front of the dress, which does not include the same details found on the back.
