Long-sleeved black wool dress featuring a stand-up collar, draped waist, small fins on the shoulders, and a calf-length straight skirt with a slit at the proper left side that reveals black and white printed fabric underneath. The dress also features the same printed fabric knotted at the proper left waist (on a wool belt), which then forms loose ends that extend down the skirt. Model is depicted with a cartwheel hat.
