1935 – 1940
5.5 in (width) x 8.25 in (height)
Black dress with a knee-length flared skirt, three-quarter length sleeves, and a satin insert that forms two large loops at the front neckline (held with a carved coral clip) and twists to form an insert on the back bodice. Text indicates that the look was shown on a black wool jumper, but would "make up smartly" using crepe fabric instead.
