Printed shantung crepe dress featuring allover pleating and a belted waist, stand-up collar, calf-length skirt (stitched in sections), short bell sleeves, and an insert across the chest that ties into a bow at the center. (Print color and design are not indicated, but it appears to be small flowers made with green, blue, and red graphite.) Sketch also includes a small view of the back of the bodice and depicts the model holding a clutch purse and wearing a breton hat.
