Description

Black wool women's suit featuring an elbow-length cape jacket with two slit pockets on the front and a calf-length skirt with small buttons at the waistline and an opening down the front that reveals a printed underskirt. Sketch (in partial color) also includes a small view of the back of the cape and the ensemble worn without the cape, which shows a short-sleeved printed blouse with buttons and a small collar. (The color of the print is not indicated, but the sketch appears to be made with red graphite.) Model is depicted wearing gloves and a cartwheel hat.
